39. SHANTIDEVA: What, me worry?
Shantideva was an 8th-century Indian Buddhist scholar who is most well-known for writing the famous buddhist text A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life. I think this is a fantastic quote. Worry can consume a person and suffocate them into inaction. I know I’m guilty of it and it’s something I’m working on fixing. The amount of energy it takes out of you is exhausting and at the end of the day is really quite pointless. Thanks very much to Jill for submitting this quote.
