Uh-oh... were truer words ever spoken?

God, when don't I have to pay attention to this one:
Peace of mind is such an elusive prize.

There is only one way to be totally at ease in every condition of life. I will repeat that in different words. There is a certain state of mind which gives you complete command of everything that happens to you.

Are you eager to know what it is?

It is a state of mind in which you never need to prove you are right.

--Vernon Howard

One translation of the Dao De Jing has it: "A wise man doesn't need to prove his point. A man who has to prove his point is not wise."
