The first duty of love is to listen.
“I think I’ve discovered the secret of life –
you just hang around until you get used to it.”
"Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away."
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
"Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
“The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."
Peace may sound simple – one beautiful word –but it requires everything we have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.
“Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
Don’t ever forget that you are a citizen of this world, and there are things you can do to lift the human spirit, things that are easy, things that are free, things that you can do every day. Civility – Respect – Kindness-Character
