"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."
"But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one’s life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your Favorited fountain? And then to do it again the next day?"
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit."
