There is divine beauty in learning... To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences,¬ their quests. And so are you." Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain. The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises. Don't spend your precious time asking "Why isn't the world a better place?" It will only be time wasted. The question to ask is "How can I make it better?" To that there is an answer.
Let me leave you with this last note...
I might not be the cutiest or the
sexiest... nor have the perfect body... I might not be the first
choice...but I'm a GREAT choice... I don't pretend to be someone
else...cause I'm good at being ME... I might not be proud of some of the
things I've done...but I'm proud of who I am today. Take me as I am or
watch me as I go
