“The way in which people miss their opportunities is melancholy.”
Elizabeth von Arnim, The Solitary Summer

“I vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“Slumbering in every human being lies an infinity of possibilities, which one must not arouse in vain. For It is terrible when the whole man resonates with echoes and echoes, none becoming a real voice.”
Elias Canetti, Notes from Hampstead

“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”
Seneca, On the Shortness of Life
