To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.
Kofi Annan 1938 – 2018
If we are to create a more peaceful world, made up of peaceful individuals, we need a greater concern for others — altruism. That gives inner strength, self-confidence. When you don’t have much concern for others and you feel you’re the centre of the universe, you’ll be dogged by feelings of suspicion left and right. No matter how educated or wealthy you are, if you don’t have peace of mind, you won’t be happy.
Daring to know, daring to understand, means risking the possibility that you could be wrong.
Michael Patrick Lynch
There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.
I’ve been hurt, lied to and brokenhearted. I have felt alone when I couldn’t afford to be. But at the end of the day, I had to learn to be my own best friend, because there’s going to be days when there will be no one there for me but myself.
A somebody was once a nobody who wanted to and did.
