“ It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers. ”

What to do or not to do in life is not a question of morality or ethics - it is a question of consequences
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.
The man of wisdom is never of two minds; the man of benevolence never worries; the man of courage is never afraid.
The trouble is that instead of living only in the present, we try to live in the past and in the future at the same time.
To learn which questions are unanswerable, and not to answer them: this skill is most needful in times of stress and darkness.
Is it useful to feel fear, because it prepares you for nasty events, or is it useless, because nasty events will occur whether you are frightened or not?
