With so much emphasis on the short term, perhaps a little perspective would help.
“There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”
“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
“To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and whatever you hit call it the target.”
“It's good to shut up sometimes.”
Have a good weekend.
