Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.

What is true

Even if a thousand people tell you today is lousy, it does not have to be that way for you. Even when everyone you know tells you something cannot be done, that does not make it impossible.

Opinions are useful, interesting, revealing, instructive. But don’t mistake opinions for reality.

Every person has an opinion. Yet no person, not even an expert, has all the answers.

What is true is not necessarily what is popular. Widely held opinions are still just opinions.

Listen patiently to the opinions of others, and consider them thoughtfully. Then insist on understanding for yourself, through your own experience, what holds truth, what works, and what doesn’t.

Do the work to arrive at the truth. Truth is worth all the effort you put into knowing it and living it.

— Ralph Marston
