Welcome to TANQ.

WhyWhatHow‘s library of Thoughts, Anecdotes, Notes and Quotations.

TANQ is a growing central library of thoughts, anecdotes, notes and quotes that I come across during my life and learning. It was originally inspired by Ryan Holiday’s excellent article on “How and Why to Keep a Commonplace Book“.

As time goes by I’ll be developing TANQ to make it easier to explore, filter and share its contents right here on WhyWhatHow.

For now, here’s a snapshot from the inside:

“It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and of creative action that man finds his supreme joys.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Eat That Frog!

“Fully 85 percent of your happiness in life will come from happy relationships with other people, especially those closest to you, as well as the members of your family. The critical determinant of the quality of your relationships is the amount of time that you spend face-to-face with the people you love, and who love you in return.”

Brian Tracy Eat That Frog!

“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Abraham Lincoln How to Win Friends and Influence People

“Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. Thus the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if our cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there.”

William James How to Win Friends and Influence People
