Providence

«To submit to insult is to invite injury.»

«These bad feelings will pass.»

«Mere standstill is regression.»

«The end is reached by an inward movement, by inhalation, systole, contraction, and this movement turns into a new beginning, in which the movement is directed outward, in exhalation, diastole, expansion.»

«Gentleness within; movement without.»

[32 > 31]

«By keeping still within while experiencing joy without, one can prevent the joy from going to excess and hold it within proper bounds.»

«The mind should be kept humble and free, so that it may remain receptive.»

«What is before you is the only tranquility. Be. Here. Now.»

«When a man has thus become calm, he may turn to the outside world.»

«Thoughts should restrict themselves to the immediate situation. All thinking that goes beyond this only makes the heart sore.»
