“It may be said that, so far from having a materialistic tendency, the supposed introduction into the earth at successive geological periods of life — sensation, instinct, the intelligence of the higher mammalia bordering on reason, and lastly, the improvable reason of Man himself — presents us with a picture of the ever-increasing dominion of mind over matter.”
— Sir Charles Lyell, 1863
Your mind is stronger than you think. It’s a powerful tool that can be used to overcome great difficulties. Sometimes the hardest part, is outsmarting your own brain.
