“ Anybody who has created anything worthwhile in their life has naturally denied themselves a lot of simple pleasures other people are having. ”
You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
Having things that others don't have doesn't make you special. If that's your only pleasure - that's perversion.
The best type of yogi is he who feels for others, whether in grief or pleasure, even as he feels for himself.
