Keep Learning

Education is largely the process of removing fears, be it of ideas, people or happenings. Ignorance is not bliss, as the mind will invent explanations that are far more terrible than reality.

Be Balanced

Chaos is the natural state of the universe. There are more ways things can go wrong than ways things can go right. But chaos is a potential threat and that’s why we like orderly and ordering things.

Knowing that and that we all need to minimize problems, achieve our desires and cooperate makes it easier to accept and deal with things as they come.
