Those who don't return become a part of the clouds, a part of the animals that hide in the ravines and of the water that comes from the earth. They become a part of everything... they become the Soul of the World.

Some suggestions for you :

All you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of creation. Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there.

It's not difficult for me to put my feelings into written form. I try to be concise and to go direct to the subject. This is what people like about my work, and what the critics hate.

Life is an act of faith.

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

Everyday was the same, and when each day is the same as the next, its because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives everyday the sun rises.

Pay attention to every moment, because the opportunity-the 'magic moment'- is within our reach, although we always try let it pass by because we feel guilty. So try not to waste your time blaming yourself; the universe will see to correcting you if you're not worth of what you are doing.

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.

However, in order to make progress in anything, we must make the first move - from then on, our personal rhythm and intuition will show us how to conserve his energy.

True love is that which manages to avoid unnecessary suffering.

Love transforms, Love heals. But sometimes it lays deadly traps and ends up destroying the person who decided to surrender himself completely.

IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FULLY, YOU WILL ONLY DIE ONCE. BUT IF YOU ARE SCARED, FEAR WILL KILL YOU DAY AFTER DAY.

People destroy what they love.

May your morning be a beautiful one, with the sun shining on your soldier's armour, for in the afternoon I will defeat you.

It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate.That's the world's greatest lie.
