The Secret To Life

"Life's course is unpredictable, nobody can pen his autobiography in advance.  The secret to life lies in finding a way of thinking that can support you.  Life is like a form of practice, a cultivation of the mind.  Having cultivated a mind that regards all equally, one is never unhappy; having cultivated a contended mind, there is nowhere one cannot feel happiness.  To be unexcited when the going is smooth and to be calm when the going is hard is the key.  One who has no self-respect
attracts humiliation, whereas one who is never content (with knowledge) becomes well-learned and one who is never full of oneself benefits more.  Life is a habit we keep up with in an environment we like."
