Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours. Do not play for safety; it is the most dangerous thing in the world. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. Nothing comes from doing nothing. This Saturday, do something you have wanted to do for years. Something just for yourself. And repeat this process once every month.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. You cannot cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Do not let yourself indulge in vain wishes. All who seek the roots of life dig in solitude for them. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff.
Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. That which does not kill us makes us stronger. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. It is by what we ourselves have done, and not by what others have done for us, that we shall be remembered in after ages. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
