Beauty of Self

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.When you are born a lotus flower,be a beautiful lotus flower,don’t try to be a magnolia flower.If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life.True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself,accepting yourself,having confidence in yourself.”-Nhat Hanh

Simple life

“To find the universal elements enough;to find the air and the water exhilarating;to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;to be thrilled by the stars at night;to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wild flower in spring – these are some of the rewards of simple life.”-John Burroughs.
