A measure of humanity’s potential


Do not compare yourself with others.

Do not try to make anyone love you, but allow yourself to be loved.

Remember that a rich person is not one who has the most, but one who needs the least.

It only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love, but it takes many years to heal them.

Learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.

Realize there are persons who love you dearly but simply do not know how to express or show their feelings.

Understand that two people will look at the same thing but see it differently.

You must forgive yourself.

By thinking anxiously about the future one forgets the present, such that he lives in neither the present nor the future.
