The world is round so that love and friendship may surround it. The longer I live, the more I learn that life is not about the quantity of friends that we have but it is about the quality of our friends; that special friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget; and that true friends are never apart, maybe in distance but not in the heart.

 It is the beauty within us that makes it possible for us to recognize the beauty around us. The question

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul. Saint Agustine

 is not what we look at but what we see. I have learned that if we advance confidently in the direction of our dreams and try hard to live the life we imagine, we will meet success in due time. So, rather than money, rather than fame, rather than keep on pursuing hard to feel self-important, let us pursue love and truth and live honestly and with dignity.

There is no definition of beauty, but when we can see someoneís spirit coming through, something unexplainable, thatís beautiful to me.

Let us try to live in the present, launch ourselves on every wave, and find our eternity in each moment. Let us not like fools who stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. However mean our life is, let us meet and live it; do not turn away from it. It is not as bad as what we think it is.

Let us scatter seeds of kindness everywhere we go. Nourish the seeds with love and encourage them to grow. EVEN THESE DAYS OF THE PANDEMIC WE HAVE THE OPPURTUNIITY TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WE KNOW BY BEING GENEROUS IN OUR APPRECIATION FOR WHAT THEY POST IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA INSTEAD OF FEELING SUPERIOR, SELFISH OR INDIFFERENT.

It is the beauty within us that makes it possible for us to recognize the beauty around us. The question is not what you look at but what you see. Whatís the whole point of being pretty on the outside when youíre so ugly on the inside? Beauty is being the best possible version of us on the inside and out.

I find beauty in unusual things, like hanging your head out the window or sitting on a fire escape Scarlett Johnson
