Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
But life inevitably throws us curve balls, unexpected circumstances that remind us to expect the unexpected. I've come to understand these curve balls are the beautiful unfolding of both karma and current.
I am I plus my circumstances.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: we are given one life and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.
Omar N. Bradley
