If someone asks me what I did today to make the world around me a better place, do I really want the answer to be “nothing”?
Man is the only animal that laughs. Enjoy it. Even faking a laugh changes our brain chemistry for the better.

“If anyone can prove and show to me that I think or act in error, I will gladly change it – for I seek the truth, by which no one has ever been harmed.”
~ Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations”, 6-31

Have I surrendered, or is this only a ceasefire?
