4.20 Life as a recursion

Arthur Schopenhauer answered: “What is the meaning of life?” by determining that one’s life reflects one’s will, and that the will (life) is an aimless, irrational, and painful drive. Salvation, deliverance, and escape from suffering are in aesthetic contemplation, sympathy for others, and asceticism.

# Act on Fear

4.18 Dale

.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. — Dale Carnegie

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, “Always do what you afraid to do.” — Emerson

The way to develop self-confidence, he said, is to do the thing you fear to do and get a record of successful experiences behind you. — Lowell Thomas

# 旅程

.

To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.

–Emerson

.

.

The moments when you attain a goal and realize true perfection probably account for less than 2 percent of your lifetime, while the process of living and working toward your goals occupies the rest. If you look to perfection to supply your sense of success, you are discounting the other 98 percent of your life.

–Katz and Liu

The journey is the destination.

# 親歷其境

4.17.4 Influence

.

When suggesting on how to write a successful book, John T. Reed wrote:

“At the Dale Carnegie public speaking class, which I highly recommend — they say anyone can make a good speech if he or she has earned the right to speak on the subject in question. How do you earn the right? By living through the subject or by doing extensive research on it — which is arguably another form of living through it. Same principle applies to how-to writing.”

The difference between theory and practice is small in theory but big in practice.

4.16 Impossible

.

If you want to imagine what the world is going to be like in the future,

don’t work for what’s possible now.

Start by imagining the impossible,

only then we even get close to a vision of our fantastic future.

— Gillian Anderson, Future Fantasic

To be creative, think not what is possible, but what is impossible.

# “Why not?”

4.15 Shaw
