Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality.

A way that matters

Do you want your life to go somewhere? Then you must give it somewhere to go.

Do you want a good and fulfilling existence? You make that possible by developing a clear and specific understanding of goodness and fulfillment.

After all, if you can’t articulate what is meaningful to you, how can you support and expand it in your world? To make progress requires that you point your efforts in some particular direction.

To zero your life in on a purpose is a difficult thing, and yet that’s the whole point. For in that meaningful difficulty, the richness of your life is able to arise.

It has become easy to comfort yourself with the pleasures of the moment. But those pleasures can never satisfy your longing to experience meaning that transcends time and circumstance.

Go beyond saying you care and appearing to care. Live in a way that matters to you by having the courage to discover and give life to exactly what does matter to you.

— Ralph Marston
