"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
"There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself though it is always secretly there. It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility and our hearts to love life... This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as blessing."
Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
~ Elie Wiesel
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and love the questions themselves...
~Rainer Maria Rilke

"Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it."
~ Soren Kierkegaard
Being deeply loved gives you strength,
Loving deeply gives you courage.
~ L. Tzu
