The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.

Life goes on

Sometimes you need to be uncomfortable. Sometimes disappointment inspires you in a way that nothing else can.

Life is not perfect and you wouldn’t want it to be. Situations that are complex, messy, and ambiguous can end up bringing great value to your life.

There are occasions when you must proceed without having complete information about what you’re doing. There will come many times when you have no assurance of success.

But that’s how life goes, and you’re able to go along with it. That’s what life is, and you can take it all in stride.

If you always insist on a guarantee, you’re guaranteed to miss out on much of life’s value. Yet when you’re eager to take whatever comes, you’re sure to get plenty of rich and rewarding experiences.

Things break down, people are unpredictable, obstacles jump out of nowhere, and life goes on. Embrace the ups, the downs, the in betweens, the precise, the mysterious, and make new goodness from it all.

— Ralph Marston
