Waste Not

“We are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not Ill-supplied but wasteful of it.”
— Seneca

Ask Questions

There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world.

There is no such thing as a dumb question.

—Carl Sagan


If you want to be a clever person, you have to learn how to ask cleverly, how to listen attentively, how to respond quietly, and how to stop talking when there is nothing more to say.

— Leo Tolstoy

What a Fool Believes

But what a fool believes he sees no wise man has the power to reason away.

—Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins, What a Fool Believes

Having children may not make you a morning person, but once they start school, you will have no choice but to become one. It is maddening.
