If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.

That last quote reminded me of this African proverb:
"If you want to travel fast, go alone. If you want to travel far, go together."

"If I hear one more person call Ultrarunner a hero I’ll puke. I don’t care how hard you push your body for your own reasons that’s not a hero." -Candice Burt

"Puke away... they can be our running heroes, there’s nothing wrong with that! They, however, are not my life heroes .... different hero categories there, Candice." -Aaron B.

From a guide book to mountain biking trails:

"After all, being lost is a state of mind rather than an actual physical reality."

You are indeed always right where you are.

Don Paul's quote is quite poignant. As a matter of fact, I've said that myself!

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.

I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations — one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it — you will regret both.

What if everything in the world were a misunderstanding, what if laughter were really tears?

Take away paradox from the thinker and you have a professor.

A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it's a joke.

"After all, being lost is a state of mind rather than an actual physical reality."

A variation on TLP's quote:

Being bored is a state of mind, not a state of being. Change your mind.

If there is a 50-50 chance which way something goes, there is a 90% chance of getting it wrong the first time.
