Let the ugliness of unkindness in others impel you to make yourself beautiful with loving-kindness. May harsh speech from your companions remind you to use sweet words always. If stones from evil minds are cast at you, may you send in return only missiles of goodwill. As a jasmine vine sheds its flowers over the hands delivering ax blows at its roots, so, on all who act inimically toward you may you shower the blossoms of forgiveness
The Sweetest Sounds, I’ll ever hear
Are still inside my head.
The Kindest Words I’ll ever know
Are waiting to be said.
The most entrancing sight of all
Is yet for me to see.
And the dearest love in all the world,
Is waiting somewhere for me,
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me. - The Sweetest Sound - Rodgers And Hammerstein’s Cinderella
There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live. - Dalai Lama (via fr4life)
