Some suggestions for you :

The Warrior of the Light concentrates on the small miracles of daily life. He is capable of seeing what is beautiful because he carries beauty within himself, for the world is a mirror and gives back to each man the reflection of his own face.

Diplomacy is also the art of postponing decisions until the problems resolve themselves.

Pianos should never go out of tune. The true sin is something different than what we've been taught; the true sin is living so far removed from absolute harmony. That is more powerful than the truths and lies we tell every day.

Like children, the insane will not budge until their desires have been satisfied.

His way isn't the same as mine, nor mine as his. But we're both in search of our destinies, and I respect him for that.

The heart decides, and what it decides is all that really matters.

We must love because we are loved by God. We must be conscious of death if we are to have a proper understanding of life. We must struggle in order to grow.

When we dare to see things differently, life opens up to our eyes.

No one should let themselves get used to anything.

Remember: when someone leaves, it's because someone else is about to arrive.

Elegance lies not in the clothes we wear, but in the way we wear them.

I see millions and millions of people convinced that they're communicating with the Cosmos and thus saving the human race. Each time it fails, as it always will, they lose a little bit of hope. The next new book or seminar restores their faith, but after a few weeks they forget what they learned, and hope drains away.

I'm afraid of love, because it involves things that are beyond our understanding; it sheds such a brilliant light, but the shadow it casts frightens me.

We are our own greatest surprise.
