I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t doeverything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.
What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected tothank you for it – would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
