Words of Wisdom: Shakespeare

"to thine own self be true,
and it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man ."

-Polonius in HAMLET

It bears repeating, since it doesn't register or permeate
the membrane on the first few pass overs;


A lot of problems are solved or avoided all together by keeping
it simple. Honesty with one's own desires, needs, and makeup
is the only means of happiness and contentedness.
All else is illusion and waste of time.

I start every day by saying to myself:
"Imagine that you knew in advance that
THIS was to be your last day of life on the planet?"

Now, how do you enter the fray?
How do you live your life?
What are your priorities?
How much do your fears and insecurities (and other people's
dismissals) matter now?
