Since I grew tired of the chase

I sail with every wind.

(French, German)

Depuis que je suis fatigué de chercher
J’ai appris à trouver.
Depuis qu’un vent s’est opposé à moi
Je navigue avec tous les vents.

Seit ich des Suchens müde ward,
Erlernte ich das Finden.
Seit mir ein Wind hielt Widerpart,
Segl’ ich mit allen Winden.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche also said...

Let it not be your honor henceforth whence you come, but where you go!

The best way to begin each day well is to think upon awakening whether we could not give at least one person pleasure on this day.

All of us harbour in ourselves hidden gardens and plantations;

Become who you are!

He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”

On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
