A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain.

Take a break

Many of your best ideas arrive when you’re not trying to have them. Take a few moments, or a few days, and take a break.

To sharpen your focus, relax it for a while, on a regular basis. Give your mind time and space to make sense of all it takes in.

Living with purpose does not mean you must tightly schedule every millisecond. Spend time acquainting yourself with the world outside your own agenda.

You rest better when you’ve worked hard. You work better when you’ve rested well.

Give your life, your work, your spirit, the benefits of balance. Allow focused intention and relaxed serendipity to support each other and to elevate all that you experience.

Work, play, determination, relaxation, focus, curiosity, effort, and peaceful contemplation. A rich life is a balance of all these good things.

— Ralph Marston
