I believe that, through the act of living, the discovery of oneself is made concurrently with the discovery of the world around us.
The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us.
The greatest discovery is to find a hero within oneself that will choose life over death; and fight for hope through despair to possess the will to live.
The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
