Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence.

Privilege

You have the privilege of living this day. You have the privilege of doing something good with it.

If there’s any task you consider a chore, a bother, a nuisance, step back and reconsider. What it is really, is a privilege.

When you fight against what you must do, all you do is make it harder on yourself. So do yourself a big favor, embrace the work, be thankful for it.

In fact, see if you can actually enjoy it. Chances are, you can.

There are those who would give anything to be able to do things you take for granted. Remind yourself how fortunate you are, and put that good fortune into action.

Honor the privilege with joy and gratitude. Take the actions, do the work, and feel life’s goodness as it flows through you.

— Ralph Marston
