Excerpt from The Development of Will by Wladyslaw Misiewicz
“No force in the human system can be properly used unless it is rightly directed. As the will is the only factor in man that has the power to direct or control, a thorough development of the will becomes absolutely necessary in order to have a clear understanding of its application under every circumstance.”
From Perfection of Energy by Shantideva
“Having become patient [through practising the Perfection of Forbearance], one should cultivate energetic effort; for it is by effort that Enlightenment is gained. Just as there is no movement without wind, there is no performance of merit without energy.”
