No small plans

Make no small plans for they have no power to stir the soul.

A quality

There is a quality about women who choose men sparingly; it appears in their walk, in their eyes, in their laughter and in their gentle hearts.

 

~Charles Bukowski

Happiness

Someone once asked me what I regarded as the three most important requirements for happiness. My answer was: A feeling that you have been honest with yourself and those around you; a feeling that you have done the best you could both in your personal life and in your work; and the ability to love others.

 

~Eleanor Roosevelt

Being happy

There is a very simple secret to being happy. Just let go of your demand on this moment. Any time you have a demand on the moment to give you something or remove something, there is suffering. You’re arguing with ‘What Is’- your demands keep you chained to the dream-state of the conditioned mind. The desire to control… is, ultimately, our unwillingness to just be awake.
