WHAT YOU SEEK IS SEEKING YOU - RUMI
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living
Wherever you find yourself, always look for something beautiful, it may just turn your life around!
A. Joseph Rosado

The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds can change the outer aspects if their lives.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
