How can we expect a harvest of thought who have not had a seedtime of character?

Every choice matters

None of the choices you make are trivial. Because each one of them interacts with your life, and is profound to a degree impossible to comprehend.

None of the moments you spend are meaningless. Every moment moves your life in one particular direction or another.

It’s easy to mentally write off the small things. Yet those small things all stay with you in some way, and add up, and make your life what it is.

Diligence, discipline, respect, and gratitude can sometimes seem like distant, empty platitudes. Yet they are immensely practical and serve as a bulwark against a life of despair.

The way to make your life mean something is to make each choice mean something. Fulfillment is as immediately accessible as the time and place and situation you are in.

Life is a series of choices, and every choice matters. Choose now to make more of them matter in a good way.

— Ralph Marston
