“All sensible people begin in life with two fundamental presuppositions.  You are not going to improve the world, and you are not going to improve yourself.  You are just what you are.  And once you have accepted that situation, you have an enormous amount of energy available to do things that can be done. And everybody else, looking at you from an external point of view, will say “my god, how much so-and-so has improved!”   –Alan Watts
