There are neither rewards nor punishment for our actions ...
The lust for comfort murders the passion of the soul,
And then walks grinning in the funeral.
Who listens to the brook ...
When the tempest speaks?
Surviving means we have alternatives.
The rung of a ladder
Was never meant to rest upon
But only to hold a man's foot
Long enough to enable him
To put the other
The best rose bush
Is not that which has
The fewest thorns
But that which bears
The finest roses ...
Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time ...
For that is the stuff that life is made of.
Loving is the art of caring.
Caring is the art of sharing.
Sharing is the art of living.
Living is the art of loving.

Stress can become the source of strength in our lives. We can turn the unwelcome
intrusions that threaten us into tremendous possibilities for our own good.
The world is such that what may appear to be an end, is in reality a new beginning
(of something new).
My house says to me,
"Do not leave me for here dwells your past."
And the road says to me,
"Come and follow me, for I am your future."
And I say to both my house and the road,
If I stay here, there is a going in my staying;
And if I go, there is a staying in my going ..."
The difference between playing to win and playing not to lose is often the difference
between success and mediocrity.
Hitch your wagon to a star, but keep on pushing.
As food sustains the body ...
So beauty sustains the soul.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting
He who dares for nothing
Need hope for nothing.
Dreams are ideas not yet born ...
They are the forerunners of reality.
Faith is knowing there is an ocean because you have seen the brook.
No longing remains unfulfilled ...
I asked for all things
That I might enjoy life.
I was given life
That I might enjoy all things.
