"Learn to practice deep thinking. Learn the art of concentration so that when you put your mind on a particular thought your attention does not become restless, hopping from one idea to another. Most people live on the surface of life. But it is by deep-sea diving in the ocean of thought that you receive the pearls of knowledge.
Deep thinkers are happy people because they can get away mentally from the disturbances of their environment. The average person has no escape. Is always living on the surface like the fish that is easily caught by the fisherman.”
- Paramahansa Yogananda”

“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.”
- Mark Twain
