I am responsible for everything I am, and everything I am not.
The unexamined life is not worth living.
My life is my message.
If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities.

… and all knowledge is vain save when there is work, and all work is empty save when there is love;
and when you work with love, you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.
It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.
It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.
It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit …
Work is love made visible.
— Kahlil Gibran
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
