Some people think agreeing to nothing is a license to criticize everything.

There are people in this world who won't agree to anything or offer an opinion to anything when asked or to anything brought to them. But at the very first chance, they will offer criticism of other people's answers to the question asked. They will deride things that have been offered to them that was taken back for lack of an response. To them, their derision and unkind words are an expression of superiority. They feel empowered in their ability to thwart the efforts of others while offering nothing themselves.
They place a high value on their response when in reality they can offer nothing of substance. They inhabit meetings purely for opportunities to not participate rather than working together for a common outcome. They do so thinking what they do is invisible and so they do it in plain sight. These people feed on the civility of others and polite manners, thinking that there is no word for what they do. In fact, there is one word that describes them: Spineless.

A great master begins with the mastery of one

Sort of the opposite of the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none."
Was "Journey of Jack of all Trades begins with the mastery one."

People who don't want to try something because they are afraid they are not good at it, will always wait. But when is someone good at it the first time, all the time?
So try. Be good at it. Repeat.

Want less, fulfilled sooner

Why is it the more we crave, the less content we feel? Everywhere around us, everything tells us to ask for more, aim higher and get more stuff. But does stuff actually fills that hole? Or does it just make it feel deeper, more space to stuff things in. If fulfillment is what we seek, maybe we should do the logical thing. What is shorter than a straight line between two points? A shorter line. So maybe we should stop along the way to that second point. Make more points. Make a shorter line. In short, want less. If we want less, it's likely we can get what we want sooner. Be satisfied sooner. Fulfilled earlier.  And because we are human, we will want more later. Another point along they way. And another. And another. till we reach the other point.

Idiots must understand the difference between being righteous and being right.

Being righteous sometime means being wrong sometime, too. Being right means you are right all the time. Being Right doesn't mean you are right, just as being Left doesn't mean you're wrong.Being a right Idiot means being right. Being a Right Idiot means your twice it An idiot doesn't know how they got it right. An righteous idiot doesn't know how.
