“Be, Don’t Become”


“Children teach you that you can still be humbled by life, that you learn something new all the time.  That’s the secret to life, really — never stop learning.  It’s the secret to career.  I’m still working because I learn something new all the time.  It’s the secret to relationships. Never think you’ve got it all.”    (Clint Eastwood)



“I think that you find your own way.  You have your own rules.  You have your own understanding of yourself, and that’s what you’re going to count on.  In the end, it’s what feels right to you.  Not what your mother told you.  Not what some actress told you.  Not what anybody else told you but the still, same voice.”    (Meryl Streep)



“The four hardest tasks on earth are neither physical nor intellectual feats, but spiritual ones:

    1)  to return love for hate;

    2)  to include the excluded;

    3)  to forgive without apology, and

    4)  to be able to say ‘I was wrong.’”       (Anon)



“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.  If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.  If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.”    (Buddha)



“Be — don’t try to become.”    (Osho)
