wise words from nesmith

I refuse to let anything happen to me. I make myself happen to things. If you allow yourself to become a victim of circumstances, then they are happening on you and you don’t have a darn thing to say about it. The most important thing is how you react to circumstances. Don’t try to force yourself to understand things. Just react normally, naturally, and spontaneously – and you will gain wisdom and insight.
