A Quote by Paulo Coelho on madness, habits, sanity, working, and insanity

I think the big danger of madness is not madness itself, but the habit of madness.  What I discovered during the time I spent in the asylum is that I could choose madness and spend my whole life without working, doing nothing, pretending to be mad.  It was a very strong temptation..

Time is that quality of nature which keeps events from happening all at once. Lately it doesn't seem to be working.

A Quote by Jasper Johns on idea and working

I often find that having an idea in my head prevents me from doing something else. Working is therefore a way of getting rid of an idea.

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on god, christian, cs lewis, perfection, working, future, and promise

The command "Be ye prfect" is not idealistic gas. Nor is it a command to do the impossible. He said (in the Bible) that we were "gods" and he is going to make good his words. He will make us into a god or goddess, a dazzling, radiant, immortal creature...a bright stainless mirror which reflects back to God perfectly.

A Quote by Zen Buddhism on zen, buddha, buddhism, love, play, mind, body, excellence, grace, work, working, and playing

The person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion.  They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them, they are always doing both.
