Of that which is transient and subject to suffering and change, one cannot rightly say: `This belongs to me; this am I; this is my Self' - [Buddha]

In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by
waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it
falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in
the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn't because the universe is
cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and
knows we don't appreciate things that fall into our laps.
