"Write it on your heart, that every day is the best day of the year." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I can alter my life by altering my attitude. He who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.” - Henry David Thoreau
“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?” - Sri S. Satchidananda
“Individually, every grain of sand brushing against my hands represents a story, an experience, and a block for me to build upon for the next generation.” - Raquel Cepeda
“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success.
All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality.
Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.”- Henry David Thoreau, Walden
