William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” has been one of my favorite plays from the moment I first read it and then later watched it performed.
While I often find Shakespeare’s work to be full of wisdom, I find Act 1, scene 3, where Polonius gives advice to his son Laertes to be dear to my own life philosophy.
“It has nothing to do with effort. Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts.
When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet, you just find your way between.
When you fight, you invite fight; but when you do not resist, you meet no resistance.
When you refuse to play the game, you are out of it.”
