Be Good To Yourself



“The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet, and Doctor Merryman.”
Jonathan Swift

Keep Planting

“Always continue to plant seeds and cultivate your mental, physical and spiritual garden. Don’t stop, keep planting. Someday, inevitably, they will blossom and grow. At this occurrence you will be shocked at how much effort you have put in and all of the experiences, good and bad, that came with the journey. And even if things don’t flower how you think they should, let the seeds grow however they may. There is beauty in the unknown.”

-R.B. Royal


On The Shortness of Life


“It’s not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste
much of it. Life is long enough, and it’s been given to us in generous
measure for accomplishing the greatest things, if the whole of it is
well invested. But when life is squandered through soft and careless
living, and when it’s spent on no worthwhile pursuit, death finally
presses and we realize that the life which we didn’t notice passing
has passed away.”

Seneca the Younger


Boldness Has Genius



“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of  initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then  providence moves to. 

All sorts if things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.”

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

W. H. Murray

Use Or Be Used By Our Technology

“Social media can be a great tool if used properly (haha), but the designers and developers of these technologies knew well before hand how very irrational humans are and our proclivity to become addicted to attention, validation and stimulation. These technologies give us constant hits of dopamine. We are being played like fiddles in an orchestra, and we assume that this is normal, only because we all have gradually been conditioned to do so.

As a byproduct of these technologically mediated interactions many adults and a majority of young people only experience the world and life through a tiny glass screen. We are told what to think. What is hot and what is not. Take back your mind, take back your life, take back your imagination and take back all the forces that enable your creative power.”

-E.R. Hughes


The Rewards


“Hard work always pays off, but not always for the person doing the work. Look at slaves or people who kill themselves for others while receiving a minor compensation. Someone will definitely benefit and reap the rewards. Make sure that person is you”

-R.B. Royal
