“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity,
and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.” — Henry David Thoreau
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up,
it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-
when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” — Christopher McDougall
