A man who is empty on the inside must decorate himself on the outside.Bruce Lee
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. – Seneca the Younger
Níl sa saol seo ach ceo,
Is ní bheimid beo,
ach seal beag gearr.
There is nothing in this life but mist,Aisling Song
And we will only be alive,
for a short time.
Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.
Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. This shows clearly the principle of softness overcoming hardness.
Health is the greatest possession.
Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.
Silence is a source of great strength.
If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment.
What’s it like coming back to Earth?
There’s a scene in the Lord of the Rings Movies where the hobbits come back from saving Middle Earth and they go to their local bar and nobody really recognizes them or cares what they’ve done. Everybody is more interested in this guy that has this big pumpkin. Now I’m not saying that’s exactly what it’s like. But there hasn’t been a day that goes by where I don’t think about that guy and his stupid pumpkin.
Upon doing a bit of research I learned that the guy on the right is Jim Cummings, an Indie film maker who edited himself into an actual astronaut interview. So I’m a bit bummed it isn’t authentic but the point made here is an excellent one. Will write more later on this.
