Everything begins at the start, even you.
The only thing better than a stitch in time is not tearing your clothing in the first place.
If you are a mystery to yourself, become a detective.
Untangling our opinions from the truth is often far more of a rig a ma role than it needs to be.
Unchain yourself from obligations you never intend to fulfill. Free yourself from the real guilt of imagined responsibilities. Each of these hollow promises is a link in the chains that bind us to failure.
There is always waiting punctuated with delays and compounded by complications. Why contribute to the waste of time and resources by becoming angry? It is hardly ever worth idling an engine.
Being aware of the limits of your awareness is the only way to get anything done.
What is more difficult? Being yourself without compromise or being only the sum of your compromises? No road through this life is fully paved.
It is best not to fool yourself about anything, but that is impossible. It is next best to only be foolish about as few things as possible.
To say that we are often our own worst enemy is an understatement at the very least.
