“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

sometimes true……

Looking toward the light……

“We are what we believe we are!”

C.S. Lewis

Can it be any simpler in our quest for self esteem, success, peace of mind, spirituality, love, happiness? Clearing the fog of self doubt, regrets, guilt, sadness, grief, jealousy, hate, envy or defeat is the task.

Pinnacle

“On the pinnacle of success man does not stand firm long.”   Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1786

“Fame is an illusive thing / here today, gone tomorrow. The fickle, shallow mob raises its heroes to the pinnacle of approval today and hurls them into oblivion tomorrow at the slightest whim; cheers today, hisses tomorrow; utter forgetfulness in a few months.”  Henry Miller, 1971

On a slightly more positive note…

“You have reached the pinnacle of success as soon as you become uninterested in money, compliments or publicity.”  Thomas Wolfe
