“There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior,
like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
‘Tis good to give a stranger a meal, or a night’s lodging.
‘Tis better to be hospitable to his good meaning and thought,
and give courage to a companion.
We must be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture,
which we are willing to give the advantage of a good light.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

to be truly happy in this world:
someone to love,
something to do,
and something to hope for.”

Thomas Edward Bodett

“It is better to do one’s own duty,
however defective it may be,
than to follow the duty of another,
however well one may perform it.
He who does his duty as his own nature reveals it,
never sins.”

Laozi [Lao Tzu, Lao Tse]

All blame is a waste of time.
matter how much fault you find with another,
and regardless of how much you blame him,
it will not change you.
The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you
when you are looking for external reasons
to explain your unhappiness or frustration.
You may succeed in making another feel guilty
about something by blaming him,
but you won’t succeed in changing whatever
it is about you that is making you unhappy.
