If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
So much of our lives anyway is spent not doing things, but waiting to do something else. I think it’s better for the moment, for example, to look at these flowers that are on the table and realize how beautiful they are, how interesting, rather than to think, ‘Oh, I have to get ready for lunch.’ What that eliminates is the whole idea of building moments toward a climax, building up to some kind of huge event that’s going to take place. I don’t think you have to do that. It’s going to happen anyway, one way or another. It always seemed to me that life was full of climaxes - it’s constant. It’s enough to try to keep your eyes and ears constantly open.
‘Even when we are still we are moving, we are not waiting for something, we are in action when we are still.’
