A rich father who wanted his son to know what it was like to be poor brought him to live with a farming family for a few days. The child stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights. Back in the car on their way to the town, his father asked him:
"And your experience?"
"Fine," replied the boy.
"Did you learn anything?"
The boy then explained:
"1 We have a dog and they have four of them.
2 We have a pool with treated water. They have a river with crystal clear water, fish and other good things
3 We have electric lights in our garden, but they have the stars and the moon to light them up.
4 Our garden extends to the fence. Theirs up to the horizon.
5 We buy our food; they cultivate, harvest and cook it.
6 We listen to CDs ... they hear a sustained symphony of birds, crickets and other animals ...
... all this, sometimes accompanied by the singing of a neighbour who works on the farm.
7 We use the microwave. What they cook tastes much better cooked on a slow fire.
8 We are surrounded by alarm fences to protect ourselves ... They live with open doors, protected by the friendship of their neighbours.
9 We are connected to the telephone, computer and television. They are in communion with life, sky, sun, water, fields, animals, friends and families. "
The father was impressed with his son's feelings. Then finally the son comes to the conclusion:
"Thanks for showing me how poor we are!
Every day we get poorer because we no longer look at nature !!! "

The bad news: there is no key to Happiness.
The good news: it isn't locked.

A boat for all feelings

Once there was an island where all the feelings and emotions lived together.
One day a big storm from the sea was about to drown the island.
Every emotion on the island was scared, but Love made a boat to escape.

All the feelings jumped in the boat except for one feeling.
Love got down to see who it was...it was Ego!
Love tried its best to bring ego to the boat, but Ego didn’t move.

Everyone asked Love to leave Ego and come in the boat, but Love was meant to Love.
It remained with Ego.
All other feelings were left alive but Love died because of Ego!

Feed Optimism. Drown Pessimism.

Have great hopes and dare to reach out for them.
Have great dreams and dare to live them.
Have great expectations and believe in their fulfilment.

Where there's a will There's a way.

Love Never Fails
Brandon Heath

Love is not proud
Love does not boast
Love after all
Matters the most

Love does not run
Love does not hide
Love does not keep
Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through
And love never fails you

Love will sustain
Love will provide
Love will not cease
At the end of time

And love will protect
Love always hopes
And love still believes
When you don't

Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

When my heart won't make a sound
When I can't turn back around
When the sky is falling down
Nothing is greater than this
Greater than this

'Cause love is right here
Love is alive
Love is the way
The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you.

Experience is a comb which nature gives us when we are bald.
