They will learn here [in De Brevitate Vitae] how little they have worked and that the mediocrity of all kinds of production should be attributed just as often to loss of time as to the lack of talent.

Prof. Hoberg: Do you know how old I am?
Jesse Fisher: No, how old are you?
Prof. Hoberg: It’s none of your goddamn business. Do you know how old I feel like I am?

Zu verlangen, daß einer alles, was er je gelesen, behalten hätte, ist wie verlangen, daß er alles, was er je gegessen hätte, noch in sich trüge. Er hat von diesem leiblich, von jenem geistig gelebt und ist dadurch geworden, was er ist.

[To desire that one should retain all that he has ever read is like desiring that he carry around everything that he has ever eaten inside himself still. He has lived from this one corporally, from that one spiritually and has become what he is thereby.]

Arthur Schopenhauer

I know this quote is a bit overused, but it says all that I want to say - all that I want to be told - so please excuse the unoriginality and draw from it what you can. Let it inspire you once more to take a chance. No matter how big. No matter how small.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
