"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul
-- Eleonora Duse
"Talk happiness; talk faith; talk health. Say you are well, and all is well with you, and God shall hear your words and make them true."
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, 1850-1919
American Author and Poet
"To touch someone with kindness is to change someone forever. Heavy, huh? But that's not the half of it. Because for everyone you touch you also reach everyone they will ever know. And everyone they will ever know. And so, for the rest of all time, your kindness will be felt in waves that will spread long after you move on."
Mike Dooley, Inspirational Author, and Speaker
Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
"When the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.
Whatever you fear most has no power;
it is your fear that has the power.
American Talk Show Host and Actress
If you just look at all that already exists in your life, all that you already have: unlimited air to breathe, ample lighting to see, music to hear, books to read, stars to dream by, trees to gaze at, floors to dance on, friends to cavort with, enemies to befriend, strangers to meet, woods to walk through, beaches to comb, rocks to scale, rains to cleanse you, rivers to float you, animals to comfort you, you do have to admit, there's more of it than you could ever, ever, ever spend."
You can become a night watchman and live happily. It is what you are inwardly that matters. Your inner peace and joy you have to earn. It is much more difficult than earning money. No university can teach you to be yourself.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, 1897-1981
Indian Spiritual Teacher
The responsibility of our time is nothing less than a revolution. A revolution that would be peaceful if we are wise enough; humane if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough. But a revolution will come whether we will it or not. We can affect it's character, we cannot alter it's inevitability.
Robert F. Kennedy, 1925-1968
