Today’s Quote

“Self respect by definition is a confidence and pride in knowing that your behaviour is both honorable and dignified. When you harass or vilify someone, you not only disrespect them, but yourself also. Street harassment, sexual violence, sexual harassment, gender-based violence and racism, are all acts committed by a person who in fact has no self respect.
Respect yourself by respecting others.”

“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”

T. H. White, The Once and Future King

Steve Jobs’ Three Rules of Life …

1. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

2. Don’t be trapped by dogma –
which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.

3. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition –
they somehow already know what you truly want to become.

– Steve Jobs
