with which no man can fail.

It's name is simplicity...reducing to the 
simplest possible terms every problem.

We maintain our world with inner dialogue.
A man (or woman) of knowledge is aware 
that the world will change completely 
as soon as they stop talking to themselves.

The more tightly we hold self, the more problem.
No self, problem.

It's that wonderful old-fashioned idea that 
others come first and you come second. 

This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. 

Others matter more than you do, 
so 'don't fuss, dear; get on with it'.

~ Audrey Hepburn

The only way you will ever awaken is through the silence,
not through the analyzation of facts. 

Not by sorting out good and bad, 
but through simple silence, letting go. 

Letting go of all thoughts, all the hurts, all the dogmas 
and concepts. Letting go of these daily.

~ Robert Adams

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions --- 
the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or smile,
a kind look, a heartfelt compliment.
