Real, fulfilling life

Life gives to you what you give to life. The way you experience life depends on the way you choose to live it.

If you act according to your own greed, you will suffer from the greed of others. If you live with hatred you will be the recipient of hatred.

When you live out of a sense of authentic love, you will receive love from others. Live with true respect, and you will be truly respected.

You cannot possibly get the good things you do not wish to give. You cannot possibly avoid receiving in return whatever it is you offer to life.

A puzzle that is solved for you is really not any fun. A life that is lived for you is no life at all.

Make your own way, shoulder your own burdens, and give your very best in every moment. That is real, fulfilling life, and it is priceless.

— Ralph Marston
