Quote of the Day: Samuel Smiles on enthusiasm

It is energy - the central element of which is will - that produces the miracles of enthusiasm in all ages.
Everywhere it is the main-spring off what is called force of character, and the sustaining power of all great action.


- Samuel Smiles

Lately, I'm always feeling drained and worn out.  I guess that by Mr. Smiles, that means I'm weak-willed.  He's right, though.  It's hard to be enthusiastic about anything, even that which you love, when you're tired all the time.  So how do I break up this funk and get back to my sunshine self?
