In developing compassion, we care for those we love, those we know.
Eventually we will even care for those we do not like, those we do not know.
Peace within creates beauty without.
May all beings become messengers of peace in times of chaos and conflict.
May they become the calm voice of reason in times of anguish and anger.
Gentleness is the companion of joy tenderness of compassion serenity of wisdom.
Happiness lies in the smile, not in the object that inspired the smile.
To listen and to be listened to is the way to understanding and peace.
Understand things as they really are.
Do not mistake the reflection of the moon in the water for the moon.
