Life itself is just a thin coat of paint on the planet, and we hold the paintbrush.
Every living thing is, from the cosmic perspective, incredibly lucky simply to be alive. Most, 90 percent and more, of all the organisms that have ever lived have died without viable offspring, but not a single one of your ancestors, going back to the dawn of life on Earth, suffered that normal misfortune. You spring from an unbroken line of winners going back millions of generations, and those winners were, in every generation, the luckiest of the lucky, one out of a thousand or even a million. So however unlucky you may be on some occasion today, your presence on the planet testifies to the role luck has played in your past.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
Fearing death meant also fearing life, which stole all meaning from the act of living.
This today of yours is the precious tomorrow of someone who passed away yesterday.

We always know which is the best road to follow, but we follow only the road that we have become accustomed to.
The best way to waste your life is by taking notes. The easiest way to avoid living is to just watch.
