Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a great tree in the midst of them all.
