    The best shortcut is to do it properly the first time.

    Except for the fact that the number was intended to be a six or a nine by whoever painted it. One of them is empirically wrong.

    The best advice I've ever been given in my life is to forgive. Don't hold a grudge because the hate you have in your heart is eating away at you, and isn't hurting the person that may have harmed you. Forgive that person and move on. You don't have to do it for them, you have to do it for you.

    That's the magic of perception. Everyone perceives things/life/crap differently!

    If you know what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    From a navy seal I once spoke to:

    "You will find a way to make life hard, no matter how easy it may be"

    This is in reference to perspective. Everyone will always see challenges in their lives, but to truly be at peace, it is important to look at your struggles in relation to the struggles others around you, in similar, and different, life circumstances and situations, may face.

    It could always be worse. You cannot let pain hold you down. You must overcome it, and prevent it for others.

    I like it. It's like:
