Believe nothing and be on your guard against everything. Video
But who is to guard the guards themselves
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
There is a significant Latin proverb; to wit: Who will guard the guards?
Who will guard the guards themselves?
(quis custodiet ipsos custodes?)
Be vigilant; guard your mind against negative thoughts.
He is most free from danger, who, even when safe, is on his guard.
They that are on their guard and appear ready to receive their adversaries, are in much less danger of being attacked than the supine, secure and negligent.
I believe that every person is born with talent.
Great things are accomplished by talented people who believe they will accomplish them.
Ordinary people think that talent must be always on its own level and that it arises every morning like the sun, rested and refreshed, ready to draw from the same storehouse -- always open, always full, always abundant -- new treasures that it will heap up on those of the day before; such people are unaware that, as in the case of all mortal things, talent has its increase and decrease, and that independently of the career it takes, like everything that breathes... it undergoes all the accidents of health, of sickness, and of the dispositions of the soul -- its gaiety or its sadness. As with our perishable flesh. talent is obliged constantly to keep guard over itself, to combat, and to keep perpetually on the alert amid the obstacles that witness the exercise of its singular power.
It is rare indeed that people give. Most people guard and keep; they suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system of reality and what they assume themselves to be.
