Education makes a greater difference between man and man, than nature has made between man and brute. The virtues and powers to which men may be trained, by early education and constant discipline, are truly sublime and astonishing. Newton and Locke are examples of the deep sagacity which may be acquired by long habits of thinking and study.

John Adams (via ryanshistoryblog)

This is from a letter that John Adams wrote to Abigail in 1775. John Adams was a big believer in education for everybody.

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

1. They avoid hanging on to needless stuff, and discard any clutter before it can pile up.

2. They designate a place or a home for everything – so it’s easy to know where to look for things.

3. They write things down, and make a lot of lists - so they don’t forget appointments, or important…

oh my god………….

Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience (via quotes-shape-us)
Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.
Growth is painful. Change is painful.But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.

Desire makes everything blossom; possession makes everything wither and fade.
Marcel Proust, from Les Plaisirs et les Jours, (Calmann-Lévy,1896)
