"Find what you love. Do what you love. Your dreams are your road map. Follow them to the top of the mountain. It's the most amazing view." "to know peace is to know god. within the context of peace, we can know joy, love and happiness. in the absence of peace, we own nothing but the turmoil of our minds that jump from one negative thought to the next. to find peace, you must shut off your mind and open your heart to the only thing that matters, the gift of the present moment, peace personified." "when it comes to love, you need not fall but surrender to the idea that you must love yourself before you can love another. you must absolutely trust yourself before you can absolutely trust another and, most importantly, you must accept your flaws before you can accept flaws of another." "to be somebody, you don’t have to be great; you just have to be good. good people become somebody to everybody by striving to be the best they can be, never at the expense of others. we become the greater good when we become humble in our own deeds. humility is the one core quality that stands above goodness and greatness. remember, there is no such thing as being too good. the danger is always in being too great."
