The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.

Discover your way forward

How do you find the answers to life’s most difficult and perplexing questions? By living your life.

Others can teach you, guide you, inspire you, point you toward meaningful challenges. You have the opportunity to emulate people throughout history who have lived lives of positive purpose.

Yet learning or hearing about someone else’s experience does not fully transfer that experience to your life. It’s up to you to apply the lessons, to follow the inspiration, and to discover your way forward.

Fulfillment is not something that can merely be handed to you, or sold to you, or forced upon you. Fulfillment requires your active and continuing participation.

That’s what makes it so valuable. Its value is a combination of life itself, of all you’ve learned, and of all you’ve done in the process of living.

Today is your chance to add more steps to the journey. Travel well.

— Ralph Marston
