Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality.

Keep complacency away

Complacency wins by doing nothing. If you’re not actively supporting a meaningful purpose, you’re growing complacent.

You gain power, control, resources by accepting the situation as it is in the moment. But don’t let your acceptance become complacence.

Value fades when it is not utilized, built upon, and expanded. Yesterday’s victories will be worthless tomorrow if you don’t continue the effort.

By very definition, life is a dynamic experience, and standing still is not an option. Either you move ahead or you fall behind.

Any time you feel complacency begin to engulf you, reach deep inside. Connect with those things that make you determined to make a difference.

Let your purpose, your determination, your desires, dreams and passions keep complacency away. Make the most of the progress you’ve already made by keeping it going.

— Ralph Marston
