108/365 – Honor what you’ve accomplished (John Bingham)

“It was being a runner that mattered,
 not how fast or how far I could run.
The joy was in the act of running and in the journey,
not in the destination.
We have a better chance of seeing where we are
when we stop trying to get somewhere else.
We can enjoy every moment of movement,
as long as where we are is as good
 as where we’d like to be.
 That’s not to say that you need to be satisfied forever
with where you are today.
But you need to honor what you’ve accomplished,
rather than thinking of what’s left to be done.”

106/365 – Worlds within Worlds (Daniel C. Dennett)

“If you can approach the world’s complexities,
both its glories and its horrors,
with an attitude of humble curiosity,
 acknowledging that however deeply you have seen,
you have only scratched the surface,
 you will find worlds within worlds,
beauties you could not heretofore imagine,
 and your own mundane preoccupations
will shrink to proper size,
 not all that important in the greater scheme of things.”
– Daniel C. Dennett
