Changes and progress very rarely are gifts from above. They come out of struggles from below.
For many of us, clean water is so plentiful and readily available that we rarely, if ever, pause to consider what life would be like without it.
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
The mind and the body are inextricably entwined, and rarely are their inseparability clearer than when we're under some kind of mental pressure. The moment we start trying to learn a new skill, make a decision or otherwise think on our feet, our nervous system reacts - with accelerated pulse rate, increased respiration, even sweating.
Now we're e-mailing and tweeting and texting so much, a phone call comes as a fresh surprise. I get text messages on my cell phone all day long, and it warbles to alert me that someone has sent me a message on Facebook or a reply or direct message on Twitter, but it rarely ever rings.
