    This quote directly relates to KSM because it encourages the reader to learn more about themselves and not to conform to whatever they hear and give in to forms of control. If the reader believes in this quote and follows its advice then they will reduce their stress levels, be required to make less decisions, and learn more about themselves. This reminds me of a memorable quote by Aristotle which states “the Good of man [and, by extension, the definition of happiness] is the active exercise of his soul’s faculties in conformity with excellence or virtue”. In simpler terms he stated that, happiness is exercising one’s actions in conformity with one’s vrtues.” This means that in order to be happy you should know what your virtues are and then act on behalf of your virtues.

    I relate this quote to Taoism. Every individual has their own way to perceive something. Just like Professor Kashiwagi said in the first class, ” you can never be wrong.”

    This was a great quote. I like the fact that it prioritizes your own reason. The fact that you are right in what you think will always show a true type A personality. Everyone perceives the world differently therefore making no one person more right about something than another. Everyone can believe what they want and that creates what exists.

    Indeed everyone has their own perception of what they read or see. As a individual, I try to understand my own internal thoughts of other’s statement or world view and I try to be open minded about it. Hence, there are those who force the world perception into others. Having an open mind is what makes us civil and unique in our ways.

    This quote tells me in the other hand trust no one, no matter where you are. You can believe what can make sense to you, which is will not change you in any way, because people cannot be changed as the natural laws show. You need to believe in yourself, decision you are making and the vision you see.

    Interesting quote reminding us that others may attempt to control us with their words. As deceiving or appealing as they might seem, it is important to take everything we hear/see with a grain of salt and to remember to cross check anything we hear or see with what we personally believe before we introduce it to our set of beliefs.

    I enjoyed reading this quote because, even though it is so brief and simple, it exemplifies some of the concepts we have learned in class. It displays that as an individual, you ought to only believe in those concepts that reflect your ways of thinking and your “common sense”–if you believed everything people told you, you would be allowing for influence and control, which do not exist.›
