Quotes of the day... 5/4/16

“My mother was taught 
the ch'an concept of happiness, 
which was to find satisfaction in small things.

the color of leaves turning red in autumn 
and the water's smoothness 
when I soaked my hands in the basin.”
     ~ Anchee Min

Quotes of the day... 5/3/16

“A man only begins to be a man
when he ceases to whine and revile, 
and commences to search for 
the hidden justice which regulates his life. 
And when he adapts his mind 
to that regulating factor, 
he ceases to accuse others 
as the cause of his condition, 
and builds himself up in 
strong and noble thoughts; 
ceases to kick against circumstances, 
but begins to use them as aids 
to his more rapid progress, 
and as a means of the hidden powers 
and possibilities within himself.”
     ~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh 

“A person is limited only 
by the thoughts that he chooses.”
     ~ James Allen

will always be found to be harmoniously

     ~ James Allen

“The more tranquil a man becomes,
the greater is his success, his influence,
his power of good. Calmness of mind is
one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.”
