That's a lovely quote, Larry. Where did you find it?
When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.
Lovely quotes. Thanks for sharing.
Deep listening from the heart is one half of true communication. Speaking from the heart is the other half ..
Let life take your breath away,, like a kiss you want to last forever and a day. ~ ~Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance~~~Great magic lies in the unseen, that's why we close our eyes when we Kiss & Dream...
Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones..Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent..Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment...Remember, to say, "I love you" ♥♪♥
Love is a wonderful gift. It's a present so precious words can barely begin to describe it. Love is a feeling. the deepest and sweetest of all. It's incredibly strong and amazingly gentle at the very same time. It is a blessing that should be counted every day. It is nourishment for the soul. It is devotion, constantly letting each person know how supportive it's certainty can be. Love is a heart filled with affection for the most important person in your life. Love is looking at the special someone who makes your world go around and absolutely loving what you see. Love gives meaning to one's world and magic to a million hopes and dreams. It makes the morning shine more brightly and each season seem like it's the nicest one anyone ever had. Love is an invaluable bond that enriches every good thing in life. It gives each hug a tenderness, each heart a happiness, each spirit a steady lift. Love is an invisible connection that is exquisitely felt by those who know the joy, feel the warmth, share the sweetness, and celebrate the gift! "
A friend is a hand that is always holding yours.no matter how close or far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there and will always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart ♥♥♥♥
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.
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal..... Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.... It is never too late to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.
A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you really are..
Our creations are an affirmation of life.whatever form they take, they are the legacy we leave, reflecting the most poignant moments of our short time here. All I know is that the only thing we can share, and the only thing we own, is that split second of time that slips between our fingers, that breathtaking moment of life called now.
When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.~~
Acceptance is the universal currency of true friendship. It does not ask a person to be anything other than what they are, Make someone else feel good and they will pass that good feeling on to the next person. There is no limit to how far goodness can travel. ****
Some people come into our lives & disappear soon after, like a flash of lightening. Others stay a little while longer & a select few share our life/lives.Whether they come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime, they all touch us in one way or another so much so that even a chance encounter can change our lives for we are never, ever the same, whoever they are ... they all touch our spirit."~
Some things will always be stronger than time and distance. Deeper than languages and ways. Like following your dreams, and learning to be yourself. Sharing with others the magic you have found. . . . "

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.― Dalai Lama XIV
Most of us have had moments in childhood when we touched the divine presence. We did not think it extraordinary because it wasn't; it was just a beautiful moment filled with love. In those simple moments our hearts were alive, and we saw the poignant beauty of life vividly with wonder and appreciation~
Life is a mystery to be lived, not a puzzle to be solved. Rather than trying to figure it all out, let the mystery unfold and prepare to be delighted. .... Kindness is the most precious gift you can offer to yourself and to others. It is the one thing that can transform our world from the inside out.. Love does not just fall from the sky, perfect and intact. It has to be made anew, reaffirmed and remembered in every moment. **** Each day brings a new opportunity to be grateful. Being alive is such a precious gift, there is so much to be thankful for. Say yes to life! *Life never follows a straight line, so be prepared for all the bumps, detours, uphill climbs and downward slopes and enjoy the scenery as you go..... Arms are made for hugging and holding and caring. Lips are made for smiling and laughing and kissing. So have a fun and joyful day!.. You cannot always choose what will happen in life but you can choose to respond with fear or love, anger or with acceptance. So choose wisely!... Celebrate today for no other reason than you are alive. You are a living, breathing, walking miracle!... Rejoice in the magic of your own existence.~Let love sing loud! Let it dance and reach out and smile and share itself. There is always room for more love, never a place where it is not needed.~
A FRIEND IS ONE TO WHOM ONE MAY POUR OUT ALL THE CONTENTS OF ONE'S HEART, KNOWING THAT THE GENTLEST OF HANDS WILL TAKE AND SIFT IT, KEEP WHAT IS WORTH KEEPING AND WITH THE BREATH OF KINDNESS BLOW THE REST AWAY.
♥ Believe in your dreams. Believe in today. Believe that you are loved. Believe that you make a difference. Believe we can build a better world. Believe when others might not. Believe theres a light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else. Believe that the best is yet to be. Believe in each other. Believe in yourself.
You will find meaning in life only if you create it.It is a poetry to be composed.It is a song to be sung.It is a dance to be danced...
Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving." Osho
"Take hold of your own life.
See that the whole existence is celebrating.
These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious.
The rivers and the oceans are wild,
and everywhere there is fun,
everywhere there is joy and delight.
listen to the existence and become part of it."
Think of the rolling waves of the vasts oceans, of the warm sun rays. Think of the wet grass, the flowers perfume, the birds singing, the joy, or the pain people feel and experience. Just get into all the sensations of life today. You don´t need nothing else to connect yourself to nature, to life, to others but to draw the spirit of Love, Friendship and Compassion into you

Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment--this day--is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day--each moment of this day--a heaven on earth...

Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb, but how well you bounce." ~
Sometimes in your life, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life,and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible~
A good motivation is what is needed: compassion without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy; just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their human rights and dignities. That we humans can help each other is one of our unique human capacities.
The Dalai Lama
I always enjoy the quotes you share with us Larry.
I have a song, deep in my heart,and only I can hear it.If I close my eyes and sit very still it is so easy to listen to my song.Everyone in the whole world has a special heartsong.If you believe in magical, musical hearts.And if you believe you can be happy
Then you, too, will hear your song.
"Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment." Thich Nhat Hanh
If a child smiles, if an adult smiles, that is very important. If in our daily lives we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind.
― Thich Nhat Hanh
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abondon. Laugh. Choose with no regrets. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is
― Dr. Seuss~~
Gratitude is the confidence in life itself... As gratitude grows it gives rise to joy. We experience the courage to rejoice in our own good fortune and in the good fortune of others... We can be joyful for people we love, for moments of goodness, for sunlight and trees, and for the very breath within our lungs. Like an innocent child, we can rejoice in life itself, in being alive. --Jack Kornfield
Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way. Express your love openly. Life is nothing but a dream, and if you create your life with love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art.
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.. Today is a new day! ~
Gentleness means recognizing that the world around us is fragile, especially other people. It is choosing instead to be tender, soft-spoken, soft-hearted, and careful. When we are gentle we touch the world in ways that protect and preserve it. ~
If the day and night be such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more immortal - that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. ~Henry David Thoreau, Walden
