You cannot transmit wisdom and insight to another person. The seed is already there. A good teacher touches the seed, allowing it to wake up, to sprout, and to grow.
— Thich Nhat Hanh (via joshuastarlight)
Liberate yourself from the illusion of culture. Take responsibility for what you think and what you do.
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.
— Osho (via purplebuddhaproject)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
