“You have the right to work, but for the work's sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working. Never give way to laziness, either. Renounce attachment to the fruits. Be even-tempered in success and failure: for it is this evenness of temper which is meant by yoga. Work done with anxiety about results is far inferior to work done without such anxiety, in the calm of self-surrender. Seek refuge in the knowledge of yoga. They who work selfishly for results are miserable.” - Bhagavad Gita

True wealth is the accumulation of experiences which silver or gold, cannot buy, but that give our lives meaning beyond measure. The only currency of true success is pure love and joy." - David Scott
