- Francois de la Rochefoucauld

 

Giving

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.

On Being a Mother

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.

- Rajneesh

 

The Only Real Mistake

The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.

Serving Others

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.

- Albert Einstein

 

Beauty

"I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful."

 

A Time for Everything

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Carpe Diem

Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.

- Charles Richards

 

Forgiving Ourselves

We achieve inner health only through forgiveness - the forgiveness not only of others but also of ourselves.
