“This Is To Be My Symphony”
“Life is without meaning.
You bring the meaning to it.
The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be.
Being alive is the meaning.” (Joseph Campbell)
“Live with compassion. Work with compassion. Die with compassion. Meditate with compassion. Enjoy with compassion. When problems come, experience them with compassion.” (Lama Zopa Rinpoche)
“Commitment is a line you must cross … it is the difference between dreaming and doing.” “Pride is a personal commitment; it is an attitude which separates excellence from mediocrity.” (Anonymous)
“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden, and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.” (William Henry Channing)
