Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.

Touch life

Touch life in all its detail. Don’t be content to experience life secondhand or from afar.

Get out and get involved. Experience the texture and the substance of living.

Don’t rush through so quickly that the scenery is reduced to a blur. You’ll find beauty in every direction if you will let yourself be still enough to see it.

Base your actions not on what will impress others. Do the things that will make you more fully and more genuinely alive.

You have special gifts to give that no one else can match. Life hungers for all you have to offer.

Dive in fully to the authentic experience of living in every moment. You, the world, and everyone in it will be increasingly blessed.

— Ralph Marston
