God only rarely reveals the future. When he does so, it is for one reason: it's a future that was written so as to be altered.

Some suggestions for you :

Do not be ashamed to make a temporary withdrawal from the field if you see that your enemy is stronger than you; it is not winning or losing a single battle that matters, but how the war ends.

Liars...are people who seek popularity and recognition. Even when faced with truth, they always find a way to escape, coldly repeating what had just been said or blaming the accuser of speaking untruths.

You only know yourself when you go beyond your limits.

Defeat ends when we launch into another battle. Failure has no end: it is a lifetime choice.

God gives us the sun and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Everyday, we try to pretend that we havent perceived that moment, that it doesn't exist- that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow.

God created the world so that, through its visible objects, men could understand his spiritual teachings and the marvels of his wisdom.

The truth about this existence of ours...can be summed up in one word: Live.

We see the world in terms of what we would like to see happen, not what actually does.

The music could penetrate even his remote world, more distant than the moon itself; it could even perform miracles.

One must learn that which is necessary, and not simply what one wants.

Because people become fascinated with pictures and words, and wind up forgetting the Language of the World.

To say we're happy might not be entirely true. Everyone is happy apart from me, as I travel to work wondering what's wrong.

The pure force of life are in communication with each other, independently of us, and then we cannot hide who we are.

How the path was forged.
