When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.
If you're waiting until you feel talented enough to make it, you'll never make it.
There is no formula to relationships. They have to be negotiated in loving ways, with room for both parties, what they want and what they need, what they can do and what their life is like. In business, people negotiate to win. They negotiate to get what they want. Maybe you’re too used to that. Love is different. Love is when you are as concerned about someone else’s situation as you are about your own.
The fact is, there is no foundation, no secure ground, upon which people may stand today if it isn’t the family. If you don’t have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don’t have much at all. Love is so supremely important. As our great poet Auden said, ‘Love each other or perish’.
If you’re not happy, then something is wrong. A person comes into the world as a happy being, yet over time, the happiness fades away and they find themselves in this bubble of anxiety and misery all the time. And it’s a comfortable place to stay, so they end up hanging out in this bubble for years and years before it suddenly dawns on them that life is meant to be happy. And, it is. It’s just that they’re too busy getting caught up in worry and stress to notice that life is magnificent and beautiful. Being alive is good. Being alive should already make you happy.
I do not concern myself with gods and spirits either good or evil nor do I serve any.
It's hard to experience desire when you're weighted down by concern.
Time appears to rush by without any concern for its impact upon you.
Anything that makes you feel alive is worth devoting time to.
When your life gets to the stage of being mindful and concerned with impacting and blessing lives, then you are pursuing wholeness as an individual.
What bothers you today or gives you concerns could be a signpost to your purpose in life.
The Lord is concerned about the poor receiving justice and that they are not neglected or cheated.
Your goal must be divided into smallest measurable and visible period of time- a day, so you know exactly what to do everyday
The proper concern of a primary school is not education in a narrow sense, and still less preparation for later life, but the present lives of the children.
Children are no longer being parented, but are raised. Thats why they don't have morals, ethics,humanity and manners, because their parents neglected them. We now live in a society that doesnt care about right or wrong.
When people support you when you have done something wrong. It doesnt mean you are right, but it means those people are promoting their hate , bad behavior or living their bad lives through you.
Never justify someones wrong action, without them apologizing first & admitting their wrongs. If you do. You are not making them better, but you are making them worse on the bad things they do.
I dont celebrate any friendship that was build on hate, because we share the common enemy.
If you have influence on other people. Dont be influenced by their hate, money, jealousy, anger and popularity .
The essence of statesmanship is not a rigid adherence to the past, but a prudent and probing concern for the future.
