• Excess Virtue is a Vice – and good idea which is carried too far starts to get reduced returns.

  • It is wise to stop short of this point and realise that everything we do needs to be contextualised.

  • Wisdom is knowing a little about many things and understanding how things interact.

  • It is the things we don’t do that we regret, not the things we do; a bias for action. Try things, learn and improve.

  • My life now, my whole life, is not only not meaningless, the way it was before, but it has the meaning of the good which it is in my power to put into it.

    Leo Tolstoy / Anna Karenina
