One can never pay in gratitude; one can only pay ‘in kind’ somewhere else in life.

There is no surer way to misread any document than to read it literally.
A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.

Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you’ll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You’ll see that no one else, other than you, was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival.
Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.
Fortune does not change men, it unmasks them.
