I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

– Mother Teresa


I have learned that sometimes “sorry” is not enough. Sometimes you actually have to change.

On Marriage


“When there is love in a marriage, there is harmony in the home; when there is harmony in the home, there is contentment in the community; when there is contentment in the community, there is prosperity in the nation; when there is prosperity in the nation, there is peace in the world.” 

-Chinese Proverb


Kind words produce their own image in men’s souls; and a beautiful image it is. They soothe and quiet and comfort the hearer. They shame him out of his sour, morose, unkind feelings. We have not yet begun to use kind words in such abundance as they ought to be used. ~ Blaise Pascal

On Friendship

“The value of the personal relationship to all things is that it creates intimacy…and intimacy creates understanding…understanding creates love…love conquers loneliness.

People only unmask themselves in the privacy of love or friendship. One has to treat them with care and tenderness. Each is unique and we may never see another like him. We must protect him from injury if we are to share his life.”

Anais’ Nin
