“Perhaps sufficient lighting: know that there is no final resting place of mind, a moment of clarity conceited. Perhaps wisdom is to realize how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to come”
“Suppose the worst. About all. But do not let this perspective poisoned affect their job performance”
“The journey changes you. As you progress in this life and in this world, things change slightly, leave marks, however small they are. And in return, life and let you travel brands. Most of the time, those marks, in your body or in your heart, they are beautiful”
