"The reason that most of us are unhappy most of the time is that we set our goals—not for the person we’re going to be when we reach them—we set our goals for the person we are when we set them."

"You will find your own ethical dilemmas in all parts of your lives, both personal and professional. We all have different desires and needs, but if we don’t discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we will live passively and unfulfilled. Sooner or later, we are all asked to compromise ourselves and the things we care about. We define ourselves by our actions. With each decision, we tell ourselves and the world who we are. Think about what you want out of this life, and recognize that there are many kinds of success."
Bill Watterson on Success (via theplumtree)

"I think the work changes direction rather than improves. In some cases, I am envious of how I drew long ago. There is something about youthful ardour, which is full of zest and eager to experiment."
From the marvelous drawings of John Vernon Lord (via theplumtree)

"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."
Søren Kierkegaard
