Line of Calmness

To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides. This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality. One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.  For our momentary lightness of affliction works out for us, more and more surpassingly, an eternal weight of glory,  Because we do not regard the things which are seen but the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. ”

– 2 Cor 4:16-18
