A must read for all from Mother Theresa

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.


You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Lord Buddha

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.

Mother Theresa

Those who wish to sing always find a song.

Swedish Proverb

The old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Imagine that every person in the world is enlightened but you. They are all your teachers, each doing just the right things to help you learn perfect patience, perfect wisdom, perfect compassion.

Jack Kornfield

Enlightenment, perhaps, is not found in a blinding bolt of lightning but rather in a series of tiny illuminations, none of which is newsworthy but all of which combine to lift the heart and widen the aperture through which we allow ourselves to view the infinite.

Katherine Mosby, excerpted from The Book of Uncommon Prayer

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Antoine de St.-Exupery, excerpted from Le Petit Prince

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

Greek proverb

To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch… to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!


The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
