Let go of the idea that the path will lead you to your goal. The truth is that with each step we take, we arrive. Repeat that to yourself every morning: 'I've arrived.' That way you'll find it much easier to stay in touch with each second of your day.

Some suggestions for you :

Those who are paying attention to others, always give before being asked for. Often our selfishness apologize, saying, if he was in need, he would have asked.

If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man.

A man who had destroyed an indifferent world in order to recreate it again in his head, this time with new colours, new characters, new stories.

You are not defeated when you lose. You are defeated when you quit.

It's better to be hungry than to be lonely - and i'm not talking about the loneliness that we choose but the loneliness that we are forced to accept - , it's like you don't belong to this world anymore!

Miracles do not go against the laws of nature; we only think that because we do not know nature's laws.

JOY goes against the foundations of mathematics: it multiplies when we divide.

And the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. And that's where the power of love comes in. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.

Don't forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else.

You're mistaken, Father. You were in paradise, but you didn't recognize it. It's the same with most people in this world; they seek suffering in the most joyous of places because they think they are unworthy of happiness.

I'm first and foremost a writer. I followed my personal legend, my childhood dream of becoming a writer, but I can't say why I'm one.

My dear, everyone makes mistakes. You're forgiven, but I cannot force that forgiveness on you. It's your choice.

Some people were born to face life alone, and this is neither good nor bad, it is simply life.

Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so.
