Shun idleness, it is the rust that attaches itself to the most brilliant metals.

Go the distance

The enemy of adversity is competence. Get some, get some more, organize it all together, and use it.

The enemy of loneliness is love. Give some, give some more, be creative about it, and care.

The enemy of hopelessness is generosity. What you offer to others, you gain many times over.

The enemy of boredom is curiosity. Life’s wonders do not live exclusively in museums, but are found in every particle of existence.

The enemy of annoyance is gratitude. Things could be a lot worse, and reminding yourself of that makes things a lot better.

A surprisingly short distance from what brings you down, is what makes you strong. Go the distance, find that strength, and live it.

— Ralph Marston
