Mental well-being

Net begonnen aan What I Talk About When I Talk About Running van Haruki Murakami, kom ik daar dit tegen:

I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring.

Verderop concludeert hij:

Which is why the hour or so I spend running, maintaining my own silent, private time, is important to help me keep my mental well-being.

Ik had het zelf kunnen geschreven hebben.

Oud worden

When you get old you feel you can't be bothered because most things don't matter that much.
Or not as much as they used to.
Or not as much as they ever should have done.

I just wish I had known that then when I was younger. Stan Hayward

Stan Hayward's answer to: "Aging: What does it feel like to be old?"

Te veel mensen hechten te veel belang aan de verkeerde dingen. Mooie les.
