"Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves.
Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other.
No matter how difficult life is...
Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you."

"Fortunate is the person who has been educated to the perception of beauty; he possesses a heritage of which no reverses can rob him...
"A great scientist tells us that there is no natural object in the universe which, if seen as the Master sees it, coupled with all its infinite meaning, its utility and purpose, is not beautiful.
"Beauty is God's handwriting. Just as the most disgusting object, if put under a magnifying glass of sufficient power, would reveal beauties undreamed of, so even the most unlovely environment, the most cruel conditions, will, when viewed through the glass of a trained and disciplined mind, show something of the beautiful and hopeful.
"A life that has been rightly trained will extract sweetness from everything; it will see beauty everywhere."
