“The most fundamental harm we do to ourselves, is not having the courage to look at ourselves honestly. To remain ignorant is to deprive yourself of the respect you deserve.”

“If we narrow our mind down to for or against something, if we freeze our attitude into accepting things we like and rejecting things we dislike, we’re setting ourselves up for stress. Instead, we could go forward with curiosity, wondering where this experiment will lead. This kind of open-ended inquisitiveness captures the spirit of fearless warrior.”
