-Jim Rohn (discovered here)
"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds."
-Edward Abbey (discovered here)
"In the desert winter night, good and warm in a duck down bag, the silence is so intense that you can hear your own blood roar in your ears. But louder than that by far is the mysterious roar which I always identify with the roaring of the diamond of wisdom, the mysterious roar of silence itself, reminding you of something you seem to have forgotten in the stress of your days since birth."
-Jack Kerouac from Dharma Bums (discovered here)

*these questions/this inquiry from here:

When you are confronting a dilemma or choice, ask yourself which outcomes will take you closer toward being the sort of person you are trying to become, and which outcomes take you farther from that goal."
