This is a list of the coolest , I prefer “universal truths” I have come across....

1) Never fight a battle with nothing to win.
Sun Tzu
(Hands down my favorite...no close second.. every single time I go to get into a conflict I stop and ask myself, “is there even a win for me here?!?”.. if not, I’m done, instantly.

2) power does not corrupt, power reveals.. power doesn’t make good people bad. It makes bad people stop pretending.

3) If the people with all the wealth and authority , who make all the rules, point at those with no power and who make no rules. Be very very skeptical.

This one is super relevant for today’s political stuff...

Illegal immigrants do not run anything... they have zero wealth and make zero rules.. so when TPTB point at them and say “they are keeping the wages low” or whatever..


Well TPTB made the rules that allow them to work here illegally.. fine any business that employs illegals a million per illegal and that problem stops years ago...


It doesn’t really need to be a million... just whatever number makes it no longer profitable... likely 20kish..

4) give your respect freely, but demand to be respected in return.

5) never look a gift horse in the mouth.. if someone gives you a gift that is inherently valuable, you do not inspect the gift to decide if you want it...


It is inherently valuable, and it is a gift. Shut up and take it.

My whole decision-making process in life is guided by these words:


Damned if I do, damned if I don't.

I have found that there is so much less stress in my life since my motto became: "Not my circus, not my monkeys".

Take care,

Better to sleep in an uncomfortable bed free, than sleep in a comfortable bed unfree.

Jack Kerouac,



Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.

Probably best to search for and find your own voice. You might never find what feels like your true path but living by someone else's words might leave you with even more regrets if you ever get a good look at the mind that forged them.

The one universal truth: Life is suffering.

The answer? Don't look for things to make you happy, be happy with the things you have.

Attachment is a meaningless waste of effort and energy. Nothing is ever truly yours. It was here long before you, in one form or another, and will be here long after you're gone, in one form or another.

And, wine for breakfast makes the day better.

(the last one just might be for me, though)
