Panic

A first cousin to struggle, panic pokes it nose above the hedge of anxiety when struggle mows the lawn. Go ahead, panic. See if it changes anything. Allow yourself to hyperventilate, breathe in a bag (what does that do, anyway?) and feel your heart pounding in your ears. There you go. Did that help? The issue still lingers there like a broken tree branch waiting to fall on your head the instant you walk under it. Panic never changes a thing. You can panic if you want, but I promise, it won't do you any good, it surely won't change your odds or make you any wiser, but it might make the pharmaceutical companies rich off of you.

Socrates

"Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued. "
Socrates Greek philosopher in Athens (469 BC - 399 BC)

Almost 2500 years ago, the Greek philosopher Socrates made an impact on the world. Not wanting to be described as a "philosopher," Socrates wrote no books, never took money for his discourse and teaching, and in general, gained a reputation for being a gadfly around Athens. His genius arose from his method of persistently questioning others on ambiguous concepts such as piety, virtue, justice, ethics, and ultimately, the good life.
