"There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way." -Christopher Morley

"If you're doing something every day for your lifewhich is hopefully a long time—and you're not enjoying it, then you're wasting your life.... We only get one life...The only thing that makes sense is to try to maximize our satisfaction with our lives. If you get to be 70, 80, 90 years old and you look back and say, 'Damn, I should have X, Y, Z'; it's unfixable. That's what you must think about. How will I feel about my life at the end?" -Howard Marks [via the interview linked to below, where he also mentioned the Morley quote above as being a favorite.]
