Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
Neither peace nor war exists independently of us. Political and military leaders have grave responsibilities with respect to peace – but they too are members of the society that we as individuals help to create. Peace in the world depends on peace in the hearts of individuals; this depends on each of us practising ethics by disciplining our negative thoughts and emotions, and developing basic spiritual qualities.
I’d rather be a failure in something that I love, than a success in something that I hate.
