I am most gratified with life when I am not burdened by any expectations, when I can just enjoy the moment for its own sake.


Expectation is the overbearing father of disappointment. Any time that your expectations about anything are not met, you will be upset.

Expect nothing but demand everything. Accept whatever life has to offer you, but aspire to so much more. And whether you get it or not, be gracious. And be grateful.

And hold yourself to the highest possible expectation, all the same.
