The problems don’t go away. They only magnify. What changes is your capacity to handle them. 

If possible isn’t tempered with probable, we unnecessarily suffer. 

You can not go to any place further than that which you are attached to 

Don’t just jump off a cliff and try to build a parachute on the way down
