I work out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; take Thursday off; then I work out Friday and Saturday.

All around us is the cosmic game, the cosmic play. The universe is full of joy, inner and outer.

It has tremendous intensity, but it is all softness and absolutely sweet-flowing nectar.
There are some designers who flash and burn - Courreges is an example of that. But he still marked fashion history. And I don't think that longevity is always a badge of honor.

People talk to people who perceive nothing, who have open eyes and see nothing; they shall talk to them and receive no answer; they shall adore those who have ears and hear nothing; they shall burn lamps for those who do not see.
Leonardo da Vinci

You don't burn out from going too fast. You burn out from going too slow and getting bored.
