Lasting change is a series of compromises. And compromise is all right, as long your values don't change.
Your idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. The more amazing, the more people will click with your idea. The more people click with your idea, the more it will change the world.
If we can recognize that change and uncertainty are basic principles, we can greet the future and the transformation we are undergoing with the understanding that we do not know enough to be pessimistic.
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Anything that has real and lasting value is always a gift from within.
Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things.
Surely there comes a time when counting the cost and paying the price aren't things to think about any more. All that matters is value - the ultimate value of what one does.
I'm kind of jealous of the life I'm supposedly leading.
