Beauty of Life

“I will greet this day with love in my heart.And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.I will love the sun for it warms my bones;yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.”-Og Mandino

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

Beauty of Life

“Don’t be gloomy.Do not dwell on unkind things.Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.Even if you are not happy,put a smile on your face.‘Accentuate the positive.’Look a little deeper for the good.Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart.Love life.”-Gordon B. Hinckley

Love is All

“Love all God’s creation,both the whole and every grain of sand.Love every leaf, every ray of light.Love the animals,love the plants,love each separate thing.If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all;and when once thou perceive this,thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it:until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”-Fyodor Dostoevsky
