There are nine requisites for contented living:
HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure;
WEALTH enough to support your needs;
STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them;
GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them;
PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished;
CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor;
LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others;
FAITH enough to make real the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

We fear the unknown,
perhaps more than we fear anything else,
and yet we are, at heart, adventurers.
We seek to expand our realm of knowledge and dominion.
Perhaps we are attempting to overcome and crush the unknown,
but our duel with the unknown is such a one-sided clash
that we must know in our hearts
that our adventure is no more than a child's game.
Perhaps we hope that the unknown
is like the darkness of a cave
and that the brief light of our adventurer's candle
can illuminate the entire cave.
Nonetheless, the path of the adventurer
is a path of joy, while the way of fear is one of suffering.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The most difficult thing is the decision to act,

- Amelia Earhart

You can discover what your enemy fears most

guilts, shames, embarrassments, angers.
One by one, pick up each memory or fear that troubles you,

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.

Your inner voice always knows what to do,
but it is a quiet voice.

and the fear-based advice
your neighbors are so willing to give you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.

a friend with whom to share your troubles, fears, hopes, and dreams.
