Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.
— Baruch Spinoza
I found myself to embody or at least subscribe to this before I discovered the quote. I have since remembered it due to, perhaps, it being reasonably succinct and as how I might write something. I find the only thing I can do in life which seems meaningful is be wise; having the patience to observe fully and so understand everything within one's experience is, I suppose, an unspeakable joy. Again, the quote hasn't directed me; I've just come across it and find it an adequate descriptor for my life's directive.


One should not utter a word about his own inadequacies. In the Oko it says: "When a man lets out a single word, the long and short of him will be known."
— Takeda Nobushige
Rather difficult to elaborate on, without doing what it says not to. I hate for my sincerity to be devalued by petty folk with sight for nothing but aberrance in me.
