Staying Oriented

Times and Seasons

Many years ago I came upon this brief bit of Irish wisdom from an anonymous source.
Five things a wise person should know: the day of the solar month, the age of the moon, the tides of the sea, the day of the week, the calendar of holy days.
This sacred and temporal wisdom that kept the knower and the community in harmony with the laws of nature. And it has stayed with me for many years now.

Another saying, closer to my professional self:
Orientation in time and space is the epitome of mental health.

Thoughts for Living More Fully

The great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up. That is possible for him who never argues and strives with men and facts, but in all experience retires upon himself, and looks for the ultimate cause of things in himself. -Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, physician, musician, Nobelist (14 Jan 1875-1965)
