"Aren't you terrified to wake up one day and regret it all?"
"Yes, terribly so. But -- we cannot wake up every day panicking in the fear of something many, many, many years down the line -- that might not even happen. Because then we will regret it all. We will regret waking up every day terrified of whether or not we will regret it."

Find your true weakness and surrender to it. Therein lies the path to genius. Most people spend their lives using their strengths to overcome or cover up their weaknesses. Those few who use their strengths to incorporate their weaknesses, who don't divide themselves, those people are very rare. In any generation there are a few and they lead their generation.
[Moshe Feldenkrais]

People are so terrified of making the wrong decision, they make no decision. Which, of course, is the worst decision you can make.
[Voice Magazine Oracle]
