🌻 By perseverance the snail
reached the ark.
🌻 Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time.
Lyndon B. Johnson
🌻 I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.
Booker T. Washington
Treasure the love you receive above all.
It will survive long after your good health has vanished.
Love is always bestowed as a gift
– freely, willingly and without expectation.
We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.
Love always creates, it never destroys.
In this lies man’s only promise.
The flower that follows the sun does so even in cloudy days.
The flower offered of itself
And eloquently spoke
In languages of rainbows
And secret silence…
Earth laughs in flowers.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Hamatreya”
As for man,
his days are as grass:
as a flower of the field,
so he flourisheth.
