The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.
As you breathe in, cherish yourself. As you breathe out, cherish all beings.
Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions.
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
