Socrates: Where are you?
Dan Millman: Here.

Socrates: What are you?
Dan Millman: This moment.
Joy: [to Dan, touching his chest] I don’t think your leg was the only thing that got broken.

Socrates: There is only the journey

Socrates: There is no starting or stopping – only doing.
Dan Millman: There are no ordinary moments.
Socrates: It’s the journey, not the destination.
Socrates: There’s no greater purpose than service to others.
Socrates: Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what’s good for you. They don’t want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs.
Dan Millman: Let me guess, and you want me to believe yours.
Socrates: No, I want you to stop gathering information from the outside and start gathering it from the inside.
Socrates: People are not theirs thoughts, they think they are, and it brings them all kinds of sadness.
Dan Millman: Life has just three rules?
Socrates: And you already know them…

Dan Millman: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same.
Dan Millman: I took for granted what I could do. I was sloppy with my life; I’m scared but I feel like I got rid of all the old stuff and it was the right thing to do.

Socrates: Sometimes you have to lose your mind before you come to your senses.
Socrates: Do you know what’s the difference between me and you?
Socrates: You practice gymnastics, I practice everything!
