– It’s surprising how hard we’ll work when the work is done just for ourselves.
– You may be surprised to find how quickly daily routine and the demands of “just getting by absorb your waking hours. You may be surprised matters of habit rather than thought and inquiry. You may be surprised to find how quickly you start to see your life in terms of other people’s expectations rather than issues. You may be surprised to find out how quickly reading a good book sounds like a luxury.
