Excellence is not a gift,
but a skill that takes practice.
We do not act ‘rightly’
because we are ‘excellent’,
in fact we achieve ‘excellence’
by acting ‘rightly.
If you realize that
all things change,
there is nothing
you will try to hold on to.
If you are not afraid of dying,
there is nothing you cannot achieve.”
Laozi was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer.
