“There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval.”      

–George Santayana (Spanish-born American Philosopher, Humanist and Poet, 1863-1952)

“Soliloquies in England and Later Soliloquies (Classic Reprint)” (George Santayana)   

Complete Engagement


“This is the real secret of life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”  

–Alan W. Watts (English-born American Philosopher, Writer, Speaker and Expert in Comparative Religion, 1915-1973)   

Play Your Part in Life

“I could not, at any age, be content to take my place 
by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”

–Eleanor Roosevelt (American Diplomat, First Lady and Humanitarian, 1884-1962)
