The limits of our abilities

What are the limits of your abilities?

Hearty thanks to those of you who responded to the question ‘Do you know who said this?” The quote was “Do not take the limits of your vision to be the limits of the world.”

I have not found this quote on record anywhere. What Arthur Schopenhauer said is “Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.”

I found the statement “Do not take the limits of your vision to be the limits of the world” in one of my writings but could not say if I got it from someone or it is a thought that was inspired by the words of Schopenhauer.

What is most important is the call not to place unnecessary limits on ourselves. As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin says, “It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist”

Are you ready for this?

If you have not given me your feedback,
please do.
