under whose shade you do not expect to sit.

I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. 
If we’re in each other’s dreams, 
we can be together all the time.

World Humanitarian Day

Every year on August 19th we mark World Humanitarian Day in honour of aid workers, who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We commemorate their sacrifice and reaffirm our commitment to the lifesaving work that humanitarians carry out around the world every day, often in difficult and dangerous circumstances, where others cannot or do not want to go. This year our World Humanitarian Day campaign is calling on people to answer a QUESTION: ‘What do you think the world needs more of?’”

- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

MY ANSWER: On World Humanitarian Day... what the world needs now -- and more of -- is 
L O V E.

Pure and simple.

Peace of Mind

Let your soul expand,
let your heart reach out to others in
loving and generous warmth, and
great and lasting will be your joy,
and all prosperity will come to you.

Be guided absolutely and entirely by the vision of calmness,
and not by the shadows of anxiety.
The hour of calmness is the hour
of illumination and
correct judgment.

you said in your whole life was, 
 "thank you," 
 that would suffice.

or worse, to avoid trouble.

Family Life

They... threw themselves into the interests of the rest, but each plowed his or her own furrow.
Their thoughts, their little passions and hopes and desires, all ran along separate lines.
Family life is like this - animated, but collateral.

New Beginnings

Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way.
Stay away from what might have been,
and look at what can be.

Don’t say you don’t have enough time.

You have exactly the same number of hours per day
that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo,
Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci,
Thomas Jefferson, and
Albert Einstein.

Heaven is eternal - the earth endures.
Why do heaven and earth last forever?
They do not live for themselves only.
This is the secret of their durability.

For this reason the wise sage puts himself last
and so ends up ahead.
He stays a witness to life,
so he endures.

Serve the needs of others,
and all your own needs will be fulfilled.
Through selfless action, fulfillment is attained.

Optimism and pessimism are mere matters of optics,
of how you look at things,
and that can change from day to day, or
with a new prescription for your glasses --
or with a new set of ideological filters.

- George Weigel

Life is either a daring adventure,

Use, Exercise, and Express

Courage, unused, diminishes.
Commitment, unexercised, wanes.
Love, unshared, dissipates.

Upcoming Year

be filled with magic and dreams 
and good madness.
I hope you read some FINE books
and kiss someone who thinks
you're WonderFUL, and don't forget to
MAKE some art --
Write or draw or BUILD or sing 
or live as only you can.
And I HOPE, somewhere
in the next year,
you surprise yourself.

 ― Neil Gaiman

Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose – not the one you began with perhaps, but one you’ll be glad to remember.
