Inspiration

Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends.

It's impossible, said pride. It's risky, said experience. It's pointless said reason. Give it a try whispered the heart.

No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.

The light that shines in the eye is really light from the heart.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread
