Quote for the Day

I read this on my pal Michael Lally's blog today. Seemed so apropos for the times.

"Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity."

Lao-tsu from the Tao te Ching (the Stephen Mitchell translation)
