“He who hopes to avoid all failure and misfortune is trying to live in a fairyland; the wise man realistically accepts failures as a part of life and builds a philosophy to meet them and make the most of them.  He lives on the principle of ‘nothing attempted, nothing gained’ and is resolved that if he fails he is going to fail while trying to succeed.” ~ Wilfred Peterson, The Art of Living

“In the end, we need two things to lead a balanced life – a sense of the world and a sense of ourselves; it’s like breathing in and breathing out.  And if you can only get to know the world by stepping out, and losing yourself in experience, you can only get to know the self by stepping back, and finding yourself in contemplation.  One without the other leads to a kind of madness.” ~ Pico Lyer

“We have to earn silence, then, to work for it: to make it not an absence but a presence; not emptiness but repletion.  Silence is something more than just a pause; it is that enchanted place where space is cleared and time is stayed and the horizon itself expands.” ~ Pico Lyer

“Visiting a new town is like having a conversation.  Places ask questions of you just as searchingly as you question them.  And, as in any conversation, it helps to listen with an open mind, so you can be led somewhere unexpected.  The more you leave assumptions at home, I’ve found, the better you can hear whatever it is that a destination is trying to say to you.” ~ Pico Lyer

“Nothing makes me feel better – calmer, clearer and happier – than being in one place, absorbed in a book, a conversation, a piece of music.  It’s actually something deeper than mere happiness: it’s joy, which the monk David Steindl-Rast describes as ‘that kind of happiness that doesn’t depend on what happens.'” ~ Pico Lyer

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves.  We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.  We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed.  And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” ~ Pico Lyer

“All life is either moving forward and evolving or shrinking back and dying.  If you want to evolve in your own life, you have to push through the obstacles instead of running from them.  Obstacles and challenges are the agents of growth.  Nobody gets to be large and in charge without facing challenges and moving through them.  Birth is messy, painful, scary, uncertain, and freaky.  Birth is also a glorious miracle that leads to new life.  If you want the new life you say you want, you have to do the work instead of just studying and discussing and wishing and wanting.” ~ Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass
