“Routine, in an intelligent man, is a sign of ambition.”
“It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”
“The easiest route to take is to glide in the direction of wherever fate pushes. But living at the mercy of circumstance makes you a passive participant in your own story. Without a fight against fate (aka the status quo), you’ll never venture beyond the expected.”
“Graceful conduct is the chief ornament of life; it gets you out of any tight situation.”
Content marketing and blogging may be diametrically opposed to each other, but one isn’t bad and the other good. There’s just what’s right for how you want to operate and what you need your content to do for you or your audience.

“It appear[s] like a calm existence [but] the turmoil is invisible.”
“With your expertise and knowledge, but you’ll never be an artist

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."
“To ramble across the countryside is to disembarrass oneself of the social and mental constraints with which one is encumbered by civilization."

“We find very few sensible people except those who agree with our own opinion.” (François de La Rochefoucauld)
“The difference between profit and benefit is that operations producing profit can be carried out by another in my place: he would make the profit, unless he was acting on my behalf. But the fact remains that profitable activity can always be carried out by someone else. Hence the principle of competition. On the other hand, what is beneficial to me depends on gestures, acts, living moments which it would be impossible for me to delegate.”
(Frédéric Gros, A Philosophy of Walking)
