The relaxation gained from alcohol, drugs or just listening to music may seem attractive, but it does' last." - Dalai Lama

So whatever you do will be unrealistic and naturally fail." - Dalai Lama

"It's a waste to chase the pipe dream of a magical tiny theory that allows us to make quick and detailed calculations about the future. We can't predict and we can't control.
