If there is righteousness in the heart,
there will be beauty in the character,
If there is beauty in the character,
there will be harmony in the home,
If there is harmony in the home,
there will be order in the nation,
If there is order in the nation,
there will be peace in the world.

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
All the sleepless nights, burdened days, joyless, restless, peace-destroying,
happiness-destroying, love-destroying hours men and women have ever
in all Earth's centuries given to worry, never wrought one good thing!
When you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart,
you live in your lips and sound is a diversion and a pastime.
Peace is not the absence of conflict,
but the ability to cope with it.
The rest of our days depends upon the rest of our nights.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Rest is not quitting the busy career.,
Rest is the fitting of self to its sphere,
'Tis loving and serving the highest and best,
'Tis onward unswerving, and that is true rest.
Great people are not affected by each puff of wind that blows ill.
Like great ships, they sail serenely on, in a calm sea or a great tempest.
You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.
Much wisdom remains to be learned, and if it is only to be learned through adversity, we much endeavor to endure adversity with what fortitude we can command. But if we can acquire wisdom soon enough, adversity may not be necessary and the future of humanity may be happier than any part of their past.
If you have learned to walk
A little more sure footedly than I,
Be patient with my stumbling then
And know that only as I do my best and try
May I attain the goal
For which we both are striving.
If through experience, your soul
Has gained heights which I
As yet in dim-lit vision see,
Hold out your hand and point the way,
Lest from its straightness I should stray,
And walk a mile with me.
Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.
We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough.
What we do not understand we do not possess.
Women are here to stay..
let's make the best of them. ;)
Those who have suffered much are like those who know many languages., they have learned to understand all and to be understood by all.
Climb the mountains and get their glad tidings. Nature's peace will flow to you as the sunshine flows into the trees. The winds blow their own freshness into you, and the storms, their energy, while cares drop away from you like the leaves of autumn.
When you're through changing, you're through.
If you don't scale the mountain, you cannot see the view!
It isn't the load that weighs us down -
it's the way we carry it.
Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well,
when they cannot be seen from the top of the mountain.
So are many things learned in adversity,
which the prosperous individual dreams not of.
