    "Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values."

    Bump! Love this thread. Here's a saying my old saxophone professor used to tell me all the time:

    "If you do not practice for one day, you will know. If you do not practice for two days, your friends and family will know. If you do not practice for three days, the entire universe will know."

    Discouraging, isn't it? It's always easier to tear down than to build... And much more difficult to tie than to untie.
