"The things you own end up owning you."

"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."

"You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.


Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
