Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
I am convinced we do not only love ourselves in others but hate ourselves in others too.

The natural world is the greatest source of excitement. The greatest source of visual beauty. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.
Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.
How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.
Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful end of a human being.
By putting forward the hands of the clock you shall not advance the hour.
Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth). Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.
All that happens means something; nothing you do is ever insignificant.
The future starts today, not tomorrow.
The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.
To forgive is not just to be altruistic.
A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.
