This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you.
I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing Light of your own Being.
Greatness is always built on this foundation: the ability to appear, speak and act, as the most common man.
In time of trouble avert not thy face from hope, for the soft marrow abideth in the hard bone.
On the neck of a young man sparkles no gem so gracious as enterprise.
There is an ambush everywhere from the army of accidents; therefore the rider of life runs with loosened reins.
When all your desires are distilled you will cast just two votes: To love more, and be happy.
Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth,’You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.
