Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Thoughts and instincts

Pay attention to your own thoughts and instincts. They come to you for good reason.

They are the voice of your life’s experience. They remind you of what you have forgotten or never even realized you knew.

No, your thoughts are not all knowing, your instincts are not perfect. But neither are they without meaning and value.

Give your thoughts at least as much consideration as you give to the words and advice of others. When you find yourself telling yourself something, listen with respect and curiosity.

Regularly give yourself sufficient solitude so you can hear yourself think. It’s amazing what will come to the surface when there’s no noise to drown it out.

Every day of your life you’ve been building wisdom within. Be sure to let that wisdom have its say.

— Ralph Marston
