There's this perception that if you worry a lot and if you look really busy and stressed out then you'll be more successful. You talk about how little sleep you get and how tensed you are and how you're not getting the appreciation you deserve.
-Nancy Mayer

From "Reflections on a Mountain Lake," by Martha Tenzin Palmo:

When the traffic lights are red in New Delhi, they display the word "relax." Every time you come to a red light, instead of sitting grinding your teeth, try seeing it as an opportunity for practice. Connect with the in-going and out-going of the breath. Be one with the breathing.
