“Like success, failure is many things to many people. With positive mental attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, and a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order to prepare to try again.”
– W. Clement Stone

“I prefer to remain unenlightened, to better appreciate the dark.”

– The Night Circus by Erin  Morgenstern

You prefer not to see the gears of the clock, as to better tell the time.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.  – Kurt Vonnegut

Each step has a way of preparing us for the next step. The journey reveals the destination. Don’t pretend you know where you’re going to end up. Instead, listen for the direction in which you’re being nudged. Today. Take that step.

Then, tomorrow, take that step again.

Follow your heart. There is nothing more.. there is nothing less to life. – Unknown

They didn’t know how lucky they were. They didn’t know what it was like to eke out life in a dead world, where the sun hung limp in the sky like a burned cinder. Their lives burned as brightly as candle flames – and were as easy to snuff out.  – Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

IN ESTONIA WE SAY:
Pole vaja uhket kuube, kui hing on puhas.

IN AMERICA YOU SAY:
One need not wear a fancy vest when one is pure of spirit.

There are three material things… essential to life.  These are pure air, water and earth.  There are three immaterial things… essential to life.  These are admiration, hope and love.  Admiration– the power of discerning and taking delight in what is beautiful in visible form and lovely in human character; and necessarily striving to produce what is beautiful in form and to become what is lovely in character.  Hope– the recognition, by true foresight, of better things to be reached hereafter, whether by ourselves or others; necessarily issuing in the straightforward and undisappointable effort to advance, according to our proper power, the gaining of them.  Love– both of family and neighbor, faithful and satisfied.

John Ruskin

He was like a still pool, seeming almost empty from the outside, as though… broken… and left only a shell of a man. But Ukitake had found once you broke the surface it was almost too easy to drown. He has to take great caution to go slowly, and ease himself in, one careful inch at a time, so as not to upset the delicate balance and send everything pouring over the sides.
