Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.

Force for good

Don’t waste a single moment of your life being outraged. Put that energy into being determined to be a force for good.

Outrage does nothing but amplify, spread, perpetuate the bad. Invest yourself in better, more useful, more creative and affirming pursuits.

Certainly outrageous things occur all the time. The best response is to overwhelm them with positive, purposeful living.

Time spent being outraged is time spent under the control of someone else’s negative actions. You owe it to yourself, to all of life, to choose a more beneficial response.

Whatever might get you outraged can also inspire you to make a positive difference. Pause, and consider all the good you can do.

You never have to let outrage eat away at your spirit. Decide instead to always show life how good it can be with kindness, caring and effective action.

— Ralph Marston
