"Throughout the reminder of my life, I will seek to learn by what I hear, see, and feel. I will write down the important things I learn, and I will do them."

Learn, Write, Do
Far too many times I've been talking to someone and said, "I heard something great recently, can't remember where I heard it, but it was something like..." and then I do a fine job butchering whatever it was. I love to listen to uplifting podcasts and talks, then can't remember later why I loved it so much, and all the time while I'm reading I'll come across something that reakly touches me. A few months ago I bought a notebook where I started writing down great things that I hear or read, and while reading through some the other day I thought I should share here and there. Coincidentally, the first one I wanted to post goes right along with everything else I've written.
