"Do you know that my personal crusade in life (in the philosophical sense) is not merely to fight collectivism, nor to fight altruism? These are only consequences, effects, not causes. I am out after the real cause, the real root of evil on earth — the irrational." - Ayn Rand

To know and not to do is not yet to know

Knowledge is learning something every day, wisdom is letting go of something every day

Only the hand that erases, can write the true thing

to observe the flow of your breath.
Become aware of a silent but powerful
sense of presence
