*You get in shape by working out, not by resting. This is true for your heart and mind also. No one has ever relaxed their way to enlightenment or greatness, success or love.
*Tell your own story, write your own autobiography. Do you want some stranger to enshrine lies and half-truths about you, or would you like your own lies and embellishments to linger once you’re gone?
One stops being a child when one realizes that telling one’s trouble does not make it better.
