You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.
Buddha

A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth or perfection is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.
Lewis Mumford

We should not be so taken up in the search for truth, as to neglect the needful duties of active life; for it is only action that gives a true value and commendation to virtue.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

If you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail.
Heraclitus

All are good, Buddha is always opening my eyes to a different perspective
and gives me many "aha" moments.
Mumford takes it further
And one is best prepared for the unexpected, for better or worse, it is a challenge
Thank you, Don

I like the "Marcus Tullius Cicero " quote. I've met so many people who live in their own minds, and that is the only truth they know.
