“If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.”

Sublime

The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related that it is difficult to class them separately. One step above the sublime makes the ridiculous, and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime again.~Thomas Paine

If we wish to be judges of all things, let us first persuade ourselves of this: that there is not one of us without fault; no man is found who can acquit himself; and he who calls himself innocent does so with reference to a witness, and not to his conscience. –Seneca

Lines

The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it.~Elbert Hubbard
