The quickest way to receive love is to give;
the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;
and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.



It is the time you wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.

Water is fluid, soft, and yielding.
But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.
As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome
whatever is rigid and hard.
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.

Lao Tzu



Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on.
Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.

Let It Go

The beautiful journey of today can only begin
when we learn to let go of yesterday.

The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by heart.


Advice from a Tree

Dear Friend,
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes 
Be flexible
Remember your roots 
Enjoy the view!

The window of opportunity opens and closes
as fast as a camera's shutter.

Nobody is capable of free speech
unless he knows how to use language,
and such knowledge is not a gift:
it has to learned and worked at.
