Have a lot of understanding and seek justification for those who offend you, in order to live in peace and avoid revenge.

“Do not watch where you fell, but where you stumbled.” – African saying
One day you will wake up and there will be no more time to do the things you have always wanted to do. Do them now!
“Always do the right thing.
Maybe that’s not your luck,
but your greatness lies. ”
Some man grew a rose lovingly
He took great care of rose and watered the flower.
Before roseblossomed, he watched her closely.
He saw that the bud was about to open … but he noticed thorns on the stem and thought:
“How can a beautiful flower come from a plant loaded with so many sharp thorns?”
Annoyed with this thought, the man neglected the rose, denied it water and before the rose blossomed – it withered!
So it is with many people.
There is a rose in every man’s soul.
God instills it in us at birth among the thorns of blemish.
Many people look at themselves and see only thorns – flaws.
They despair, thinking that nothing of value can come from them.
They never realize their God-given potentials.
They themselves cannot see the rose in their soul.
Someone else has to help them – find it.
Help people around you override the disadvantages.
It is a characteristic of God’s love that we can impart to anyone.
If you help someone find a rose in his soul, he will defeat the thorns.
And it will always bloom … again …
“A long, long time ago – I’m so old that it happened to me so many years ago – I read one story about Socrates. He went with a friend down the street and greeted one they met.” He didn’t say hello! ” he laughed and said, “I don’t mind being more polite than him!”
Knut Hamsun “On overgrown paths”
People who are the strongest are usually the most sensitive. People who show the highest kindness are the first to get bullied. Those who care for others all the time are the ones who need the most care and attention. The three hardest things to say – I love you, I’m sorry and help me. Sometimes because a person looks happy, you need to see past her smile. You will see how much pain can be inside.
