Origins of Things

A collection of things — ideas, thoughts, quotes, books, posts, skills, and more, that I found, or made, and locked them in time — that have contributed to the things I create and could benefit you too.

If we could see the origins
We may understand;
If we could return
We may remember.

One should not discount what one has worked for and achieved in the past: even a futile result is a valuable milestone in the future. Even fruitless hard work is the genuine perspiration that counts in a venerable creation...

One should learn to harvest from the past, even if it is inadequate, dispensable and disreputable. One should learn to enlarge to transcend the greatness of the smallness. And one should learn to miniaturise the immensity into the infinitessimal, so that one can dwell in its maximum of repose, as philosophers, writers, poets, scientists and artists have taught us...

And last but not least, if that should be finished in the end, one shall see the completed journey is grown with contentment, distant origin from where it departed, will spark as if it is just about to begin again.
