If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place. And even if you were in some prison the walls of which let none of the sounds of the world come to your senses--would you not then still have your childhood, that precious, kingly possession, that treasure-house of memories?

-Rainer Maria Rilke

Live as if you were living already for the second time, and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now.

-Viktor Frankl

What great quotes. Thank you. I had run across both previously, but your entries are somewhat tarot-like for me. They invariably come up at times when I need to be reminded of a particular idea.
