Everywhere Means Nowhere

“Be careful, however, lest this reading of many authors and books of every sort may tend to make you discursive and unsteady. You must linger among a limited number of master-thinkers, and digest their works, if you would derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind. Everywhere means nowhere.” -Seneca, Letters From A Stoic

I gotta get away from this day-to-day running around. Everybody knows this is nowhere.” -Neil Young from his song, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

When you’re tempted to reach for something new, think about returning to something old. Something that once inspired you. See what another pass at it does to you today. Does it still hold up? Does it resonate even deeper?

The best things, the timeless classics, have that rare ability to still feel fresh every time out. They affect us in different and unexpected ways depending on where we are in our lives.

We don’t need a bigger library. We just need the right library.

We don’t need to be everywhere. We just need to be right here.
