keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

The success of love is in the loving -

does not determine the value of what we have done.
- Mother Teresa

behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.

relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.

but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.

But it is helpful to remind ourselves to be open
to good ideas - whatever their source.
It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

in the midst of this world,

someone and never find the courage
