Bassam Tarazi – The Accountability Effect [PDF]:
“We in the West live at an unprecedented time in human history. Our world is filled with mass consumption and physical comforts that would make someone from a previous century fall over with disbelief.
[…] The word “can’t” does not have the same clout it once did. You “can’t” or you “won’t”? There is a big difference.
[…] It is our duty to take that gift and live lives that are befitting of it.
[…] Rest is paramount in life, but laziness lies at the fringes of relaxation. Be careful of ceding ground to the creeping sloth.”
