Something I've been thinking about a lot lately. It's a quote that I memorized while I was in high school. Though I don't subscribe to his overall philosophy, I do think Henry David Thoreau says some pretty cool stuff:
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
Let this soak in. I'm still following these words, and I'm not there yet.
