#1074 Too caught up

In the end, just three things matter:

How well we have lived
How well we have loved
How well we have learned to let go.

You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf.

When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another - and ourselves.

Even Socrates, who lived a very frugal and simple life, loved to go to the market. When his students asked about this, he replied, "I love to go and see all the things I am happy without."

If your compassion does not include yourself, then it is incomplete.

Quotes by Jack Kornfield

- How well have you lived?
- How well have you loved?
- How well have you learned to let go?
