How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

- A.A. Milne - Winnie-the-Pooh

Who is it that can make muddy water clear? No one. But left to stand, it will gradually clear of itself.

- Lao-Tzu

Great compassion is the root of all forms of worship.

- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Love one another but make not a bond of love. Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

- Khalil Gibran

Fame or integrity: which is more important? Money or happiness: which is more valuable? Success or failure: which is more destructive? If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

- Lao-tzu

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with nature.

- Joseph Campbell

Give Hope

The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.

- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Complexity

Honor your own complexity.

- Mark Gerzon

Don’t.

No society has ever yet been able to handle the temptations of technology to mastery, to waste, to exuberance, to exploration and exploitation.

- Margaret Mead

Don't blindly believe what I say. Don't believe me because others convince you of my words. Don't believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don't rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don't infer or be deceived by appearances.

Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion.

Find out for yourself what is truth, what is real. Discover that there are virtuous things and there are non-virtuous things. Once you have discovered for yourself give up the bad and embrace the good.

- The Buddha

The love of one's country is a natural thing. But why should love stop at the border?

- Pablo Casals
