“Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of a baby.”
Being Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh
“An old pro told me that originality does not consist of saying what has never been said before; it consists of saying what you have to say that you know to be the truth.”
