This thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Live with balance

Be flexible enough to absorb the blows. Be rigid enough to hold together.

Be curious enough to explore new ways for moving forward. Be skeptical enough to avoid being led down dead-end paths.

Be tolerant enough to initiate and inspire genuine cooperation. Be discerning enough to create reasonable, valuable results.

Be impulsive enough to know what satisfies and fulfills you. Be disciplined enough to achieve what you seek to achieve.

Be respectful of the structures that already exist. Be fascinated by the possibilities of what is yet to come.

Life at its best is not any one thing or another to an extreme. Live with balance, and draw richness from every quality of life without being overwhelmed by any of them.

— Ralph Marston
