Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because the regret is stronger than gratitude.
What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t even happened yet.
What is done cannot be undone, but one can prevent it happening again
Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness.
Our lives are fashioned by our choices. First we make our choices. Then our choices make us.
Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness.
Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.
In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.
I believe in the sun, even when it rains.
You can always give something, even if it is only kindness.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
We can’t control our destiny, but we can control who we become.
You can always-always-give something, even if it’s a simple act of kindness! If everyone were to give in this way and didn’t scrimp on kindly words, there would be much more love and justice in the world!
People who give will never be poor.
I looked up in the sky and trusted in God.
Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!
How wonderful it is that no one has to wait, but can start right now to gradually change the world!
In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit.
No one has ever become poor by giving.
don’t believe the war is simply the work of politicians and capitalists. Oh no, the common man is every bit as guilty; otherwise, people and nations would have re- belled long ago! There’s a destructive urge in people, the urge to rage, murder and kill. And until all of humanity, without exception, undergoes a metamorphosis, wars will continue to be waged, and everything that has been carefully built up, cultivated and grown will be cut down and destroyed, only to start allover again!
I’ve found that there is always some beauty left — in nature, sunshine, freedom, in yourself; these can all help you.
Whoever is happy will make others happy.
How wonderful it is that we can start doing good at this very moment.
There’s one golden rule to keep before you: laugh about everything and don’t bother yourself about the others!
