Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
— Lao Tzu
A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It’s jolted by every pebble on the road.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength
— St. Francis de Sales
