Learn to be silence. Let your quiet mind listen and absorb.

quote -- author unknown

To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.

quote by William Penn

I expect to pass through life
but once. If therefore, there
be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do
to any fellow being, let me
do it now, and not defer or
neglect it, as I shall not pass
this way again.

quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
