“Life is not accumulation, it is about contribution.”    (Stephen Covey)




“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.  There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.”    (Rumi)




“But I believe good things happen every day.  I believe good things happen even when bad things happen.  And I believe on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad.   And that’s life, isn’t it?”    (Gabrielle Zevin, Elsewhere)
