If you love a flower, don't pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.
Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.
This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love;
the more they give, the more they possess.
With people of limited ability modesty is merely honesty. But with those who possess great talent it is hypocrisy.
He who can have patience can have what he will.
Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.
Possession isn't nine-tenths of the law. It's nine-tenths of the problem.
One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.
