You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. If you would be loved, love, and be loveable. It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it. Many foxes grow gray but few grow good. When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear. Wherever you go, go with all your heart. Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action. Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance.
