Here’s another quote from Aristotle:
“We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.”
Live in deeds, not in years! Nothing is more insightful than this on the essence of our living. We don’t just live through our years without accomplishing any deeds. This reminds me of many famous persons, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and facebook founder. Their names are always associated with the achievements of their life: Microsoft, Apple products, and facebook.
I also think of my son who gave up his job with a comfortable pay and lifestyle in order to concentrate on producing something that is more long-lasting than what he enjoys at the moment.
I will continue tomorrow along the same line of thought.
