The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an insensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people don’t just happen.

Saving our World
The BEST time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.
The second-best time is NOW.
Finding the Right Woman
A man once asked his father, “Father, how will I ever find the right woman?”
His father replied: “Forget finding the right woman. Focus on being the right man.”
The Truth about Life
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, “Man.”
He explained further, “Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
