“How easy it is to direct the life of another and how very difficult it is to live your own!”
“The greatest danger, that of losing one’s own self, may pass off quietly as if it were nothing; every other loss, that of an arm, a leg, five dollars, etc., is sure to be noticed.” (1941 translation)

I was watching CNN one day when I chanced upon an interesting interview with an author whose book was titled (I think), “50 Things to Throw Away in a Crisis.” I was struck by what she said about how people can cope better in the recent financial morass that America finds herself in. I can only paraphrase what she said, “Stop being right about how wrong everyone else is.” Just some words to live by and reflect on.
An unexamined life is not worth living.
