“Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.”
— Carlos Ruiz Zafón

We have this thing in modern society where we have such a love affair with cutting deals with each other and giving only in order to get. You know how it goes, right? You attend my event, I attend yours. You write a kind word about me on Instagram and I do the same for you. I listen to you speak for ten minutes so then you will owe me ten minutes of listening when I speak too. Read more…

Some people quit because progress is slow, never once stopping to consider that slow progress is still progress. Read more…
