Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What’s the use if there’s no use?

What good is anything if you don’t use it?

What good are your skills and abilities, if you don’t make the most of them? What good is being a parent if you never have time for your children? What good is having the latest technical wizardry if you don’t learn how to operate it?

What good is life if you don’t live it? What good is knowledge if you don’t apply it. What good is experience if you don’t learn from it? What good is food if you don’t eat it. What good is wealth if you hoard it?

Possession has value, only when it has purpose. The only way to benefit from what you have, is to use it. Fulfillment comes not from how much you accumulate, but rather from how much you do, and build, and create and contribute.

You have always had riches beyond measure. Live your abundance by putting it to use. Do all you can with the good things you have.

— Ralph Marston
