“We are in such a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. We make ourselves ill earning money, and then spend all our money on getting well again. We think so much about the future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present nor the future. We live as if we were never going to die, and die as if we had never lived.” (Jaime Cohen)
“Lord, give us enthusiasm, because enthusiasm is what binds us to the heavens and to earth, to grown-ups, and to children; it is what tells us that our desires are important and deserve our best efforts. It is enthusiasm that reaffirms to us that everything is possible, as long as we are totally committed to what we are doing.” (Paulo Coelho)
“We see the evil in others because we know the evil in ourselves. We say the painful truth to others because we want to hide it from ourselves. We show our strength because, so that no one can see our frailty. That is why, whenever you judge your brother, be aware that it is you who is in the dock.” (Okakura Kakuzo)
