Mountains in Life

“When we are high up,everything looks very small.Our glories and our sadnesses cease to be important.We have left whatever we won or lost down below.From the top of a mountain you can see how large the world is and how wide the horizon.”-Paulo Coelho


Beauty of Soul

“We see the world piece by piece,as the sun,the moon,the animal,the tree;but the whole,of which these are shining parts,is the soul.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cheerful in Life

“How true it is that,if we are cheerful and contented,all nature smiles, the air seems more balmy,the sky clearer, the earth has a brighter green… the flowers are more fragrant… and the sun, moon, and stars all appear more beautiful, and seem to rejoice with us.”-Orison Swett Marden


Understanding in Life

“Understanding and Love are not two separate things,but just one.To develop understanding,you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.When you understand, you cannot help but love.And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.”- Nhat Hanh


Blessings in Life

“We need to find God,and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.God is the friend of silence.See how nature-trees,flowers,grass-grows in silence;see the stars,the moon and the sun,how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”-Mother Teresa


Tranquility in Life

“Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.”- Dalai Lama


Books in Life

“We read books to find out who we are.What other people,real or imaginary,do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”-Ursula K. Le Guin
