    When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

    Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

    Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.

    -Marcus Aurelius, emperor of Rome, 161-180 A.D.

    The opening of the Tao Te Ching which (own translation) reads:

    "The way which can be traveled is not the Eternal Way. The name which can be named is not the Eternal Name."

    Reminds me of the Golden Calf story from Exodus but more straight to the point.
