They are not only idle who do nothing, but they are idle also who might be better employed.
Man's chief end is to glorify God, and enjoy Him forever.
- Westminster Confession Of Faith
It's not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy. The bee is praised. The mosquito is swatted.
- Mary O'connor
The first principle of ethical power is Purpose. By purpose, I don't mean your objective or intention-something toward which you are always striving. Purpose is something bigger. It is the picture you have of yourself-the kind of person you want to be or the kind of life you want to lead.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.

-Henry David Thoreau
