Before you insult somebody you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way when you insult them you'll be a mile away and have the shoes for free!

Funny. You are the one who posted this quote.
All I did is add who said it.

So... didn't you agree with it when you posted it?

This is one of the things I've really learned to appreciate about music.

In my youth, Eddie van Halen sounded like a god on guitar by playing so fast. Now, not so much. Learning to rest is much harder than playing.

Rough quote - "Beethoven's Fifth symphony begins with a rest."
Intro to Music teacher

You can hear it here, but you have to look for it.



It occurs in the first second but you notice the rest at the 2 second mark.

... Da, da-da, duhhh,... Da, da-da, dohhh.

I've never seen that symphony live, but I can imagine the conductor waving and for a split second, nothing. As if the orchestra wasn't quite ready to start...

“This nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.”

JFK
May 25, 1961

Over 50 years ago.

Somewhere out there, there is a grandfather telling his grandson that he was involved, in some small part, of the Apollo 11 launch.

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

JFK
Sep 12, 1962
Rice University

Because it is hard...

A challenge to overcome.

Now, it's just an excuse not to attempt anything on a grand scale with an uncertain outcome. It'll never work, costs too much, etc...

How many rockets blew up on testing before NASA was willing to put men in that capsule?

Sometimes, you have to run away from the people you love, not for the sake of letting them realize your worth, but for you to realize your own worth.

A smile doesn't always mean a person is happy. Sometimes it simply means that despite everything that person might be going through they choose to remain positive.

To know people is wisdom, but to know yourself is enlightenment. To master people takes force, but to master yourself takes strength. To know contentment is wealth, and to live with strength resolve. To never leave whatever you are is to abide, and to die without getting lost-that is to live on and on. ~ Lao Tzu
