Find joy and peace in this very moment.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
Just as you throw a stone into the water and the waves go out, similarly your thought waves are going out. Imagine you are on the top of Mount Everest. You are sitting and sending waves out to the entire globe. You are a beautiful magnetic field and you vibrate…Become a beacon of vibratory power of your soul…Send the waves out…One planet, one humanity, one mankind…
~ Yogi Bhajan
Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable.
~ Mahatma Gandhi, 1925
Like a caring mother
holding and guarding the life
of her only child,
so with a boundless heart
hold yourself and all beings
as your beloved children.
~ Gautama Buddha

Slowness means cleaving perfectly to time, so closely that the seconds fall one by one, drop by drop like the steady dripping of a tap on stone. This stretching of time deepens space. It is one of the secrets of walking: a slow approach to landscapes that gradually renders them familiar. Like the regular encounters that deepen friendship.
~ Frédéric Gros, A Philosophy of Walking
A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.
~ Ernest Hemingway
What would you do if your cat suddenly went psycho and started to attack you for no apparent reason, lying in wait and pouncing or stalking you with a faraway look reminiscent of its predatory cousins and ancestors?
~ Nicholas Dodman
We part at the crossroads,
You leave with your joys and problems,
I with mine. Alone, I look down the road.
Each one must walk one’s own path.
~ Deng Ming-Dao, 365 Tao
Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?
