This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Make meaning

Now is when you give new meaning to life. Now is when you add richness and substance to your experience.

From the overreaching concepts, from the minuscule details, you can create meaning in this moment. Through your actions, your insights, your attention, your caring, meaning comes to life.

The world is a wondrous place, but do not consign yourself to merely watching. Engage with life, give of your genuine self, and make meaning.

Treasure all the meaning you’ve created and experienced, but don’t let it make you complacent. This new moment, this unique situation, is your opportunity to create more.

In the ordinary, in the unexpected, in what’s peculiar, in what’s familiar, you’ll find the potential for new meaning. Let that meaning flow from deep within you into conscious experience and creative expression.

Here is your day. Fill it with meaning.

— Ralph Marston
