Newsletter #32 : Hours of a wise man

The hours of a wise man are lengthened by his ideas, as those of a fool are by his passions. The time of the one is long, because he does not know what to do with it; so is that of the other, because he distinguishes every moment of it with useful or amusing thoughts — or, in other words, because the one is always wishing it away, and the other always enjoying it.

Joseph Addison

It is not enough to have ideals. We must translate them into action. We must clear our own little corner of creation.
