Some suggestions for you :

In life, there is only the present moment, the now. You can't measure time the way you measure distance between two points. "Time" doesn't pass.

If you have a work instead of a job, every day is holiday.

Love always triumphs over what we call death. That's why there's no need to grieve for our loved ones, because they continue to be loved and remain by our side.

From the moment that I ousted the Other from my life, the Divine Energy began to perform its miracles.

Not everyone can see his dreams come true in the same way.

Our dreams are our own, and only we can know the effort required to keep them alive.

The falcon's beak carries bits of me, myself, the desert said. For years, I care for his game, feeding it with the little water that I have, and then I show him where the game is. And, one day, as I enjoy the fact that his game thrives on my surface, the falcon dives out of the sky, and takes away what I've created.

And when each day is the same as the next, it's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.

To enjoy the rainbow, first enjoy the rain.

I also forgive myself. May the misfortunes of the past no longer weigh on my heart. Instead of pain and resentment, I choose understanding and compassion. Instead of rebellion, I choose the music from my violin. Instead of grief, I choose forgetting. Instead of vengeance, I choose victory.

The previous day, the world had made sense, even without love's presence. But now we needed each other in order to see the true brilliance of things.

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

There is only one way to learn. It's through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.

No one can learn to love by following a manual and no one can learn to write by following a course. I'm not telling you to find people with different skills from yourself, because writing is no different from any other activity done with joy and enthusiasm.
