and the only way to do that
is to find in your own case
where the life is
and become alive yourself.”

Notable Quotables include:  "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."  "Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls."  "Never get into a rut. Never do work that does not help you achieve an ambition worthy of your talents. Keep physically and mentally alive."

  • 16. Jedemi (May 2017): Page 16 Introducing StX StX – Pilot / Writer Antoine de St. Exupery [b1900 Jun 29– d1944]  de Saint-Exupéry was a French aviator and the author of the children's fable The Little Prince (1943).  He also wrote novels.

Some he taught how to think, others how to hear. He taught everyone without seeming to." Notable Quotables include: • "Happy, happy people work rapidly, efficiently and integratedly – no conflict outer or inner…” • "No one can make a deeper contribution to life than by having fun, if in dancing, or writing, or going places, or making a good relation…"

Notable Quotables include:  "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration."  "If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves."  "To do much clear thinking a person must arrange for regular periods of solitude when they can concentrate and indulge the imagination without distraction."
