“Never get into a rut. Never do work that does not help you achieve an ambition worthy of your talents. Keep physically and mentally alive. It is the dull routine where happiness becomes merely a matter of torpid vegetation which is dangerous..
When skies get dull with no prospect of clearing, run away, change your home town–your name–your job– change anything. No misfortune can be worse than the misfortune of remaining permanently static. Take a chance– if you lose you are scarcely worse off than before– if you win you have at least a new experience & a new thrill or two gained..”
-Joseph Campbell (as quoted in: “A Fire in the Mind” by: Stephen and Robin Larsen)
