The power of human expression

One dream can change the world. A whisper can inspire hope. A touch can instill faith. One hundred thousand candles can end a war. Some voices can move a nation. Some can dissolve boundaries. One act of defaince can spark a revolution.

Home Sweet HOME

Home is the wallpaper

above the bed,

the family dinner table,

the church bells in the morning,

the bruised shins of the playground,

the small fears

that come with dusk,

the streets and squares

and monuments and shops

that constitute one's first universe.


Everything is sweetened by risk.


Children in a family are

like flowers in a bouquet:

there's always one determined

to face in an opposite direction

from the way the arranger desires.


Truth is the property of no individual

but is the treasure of all men.

True wisdom

The only true wisdom is

in knowing you know nothing.


The greatest gift you can give

another is the purity of your attention.


Leadership ....

the ability to see

what no one else sees,

to listen when others talk

and the ability to be optimistic

when others are pessimistic.

The most important single influence in the life of a person is another person. We may say to our children: Here is art, science, philosophy, mathematics, music, psychology, history, religion - and we may open innumerable doors along the corridors of living so that they will have a broad and even a minute acquaintance with the segments of life; but these introductions are not as important as knowing people whose characters and actions, personalities and words have grown after similar introductions and have become worthy of emulation.

Time doesn't

heal any wounds,

it just gives us

more chances to make

the same mistakes.

Be careful

Learn all you can

from the mistakes of others.

You won't have time

to make them all yourself.

Dont worry

Within the problem

lies the solution.


A generation ago

there were

a thousand men

to every opportunity,

while today

there are

a thousand opportunities

to every man.

Time and Eternity

Time is given us

to use in view of eternity.


Hope is a

waking dream.

Do not Destroy

The human mind

cannot be absolutely

destroyed along

with the body,

but something

of it remains,

which is eternal.

Life and Death

Men are born soft and supple;
dead, they are stiff and hard.
Plats are born tender and pliant;
dead, they are brittle and dry.

Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft and yielding
is a disciple of life.

The hard and stiff will be broken.
The soft and supple will prevail.

Love God

Loving God is the

easiest thing there is.

You just have

to love him.

That’s all.

Love and Love only

If you do not

love very much,

it is because

you do not

understand very much.

In any situation,

greater understanding

will lead to greater love.

It happens every time.
