“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”


Quote of the Week—January 4, 2010


And it is only they who are faithful in a few things who will be faithful over many things; only they who do their duty in everyday and trivial matters who will fulfill them on great occasions.

—Edwin Arnold

Quote of the Week—December 28, 2009


Question the masses

I believe this applies to everything in life. I’m a religious bloke, but feel strongly this even goes for religion. There is a difference between questioning and doubt. The former is almost always healthy, where the latter almost always destructive.

Too often we take what others say as gospel (public education, for example), only to find out we’re miserable when we act on their advice. Find your own voice, and speak up.

Don’t be afraid of failure. Be afraid of never trying.

*Jessica Hagy blogs at Indexed and is the author of a wonderful book of the same name.


Let us not concern ourselves about how other men will do their duties, but concern ourselves about how we shall do ours.
