I like to save and/or print random quotes that I feel are significant to me & my personal growth. I find hanging them in random places or using as the phone/computer wallpaper helps give me a mental boost throughout the day.
Ask a question and I will try to find an answer in almost 80 years of homestead experience. If there is no question there is no reason to come up with a crazy idea.
I first found Permies when Ask.com directed me to a question here on scythes. I joined because I love the questions.
I made up a little ditty a few years ago that I like to think about every now and then:
Tue and Thor, Wedn and Fri
Who are they but pigs in a sty
The days have been given to fiction and fable
To see the world true we are wholly unable.
The names of the days of the week are the names of European gods (who are not gods) who correspond with the planetary deities of the ancient Greeks and Romans and are positioned according to a scheme based on the lie that the sun revolves around the earth.
I like to refer to the days of the week based on their numerical order. Sometime when you get bored, look up the basis for the planetary week.

Sleep can be seen as a type of death so that awakening in the morning can be seen as a type of resurrection.
In a performance review a boss once wrote that "Mike thinks outside the box that the box is in". I think it was a positive comment and I'm definitely taking it that way :)
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
