Vidám szép derűs napokat kivánok, minden kedves Tagoknak

Never give up thinking: It is possible

Never say again: I will never

Always remember the good actions

The good thoughts

Good hearts beats everywhere

What is good?

For example, when vengeance no longer exist in our mind...

LoThree verbs that are well combined,
are light bulbs in our way -
"Learning", "Serve" and "cooperate."
♥ Three attitudes require much attention -
"Analyze", "Fail" and "complain."
♥ Give three rules of conduct never regretted -
"Helping" with the intention of good, "Silence" and "Opinions"
phrases of kindness and encouragement.
♥ Three guidelines will keep us invariably in the right direction -
"Helping without distinction", "Forget all evil" and "always work".
♥ Three positions should avoid in all circumstances -
"Curse", "order" and "Destroy".
♥ We have three values,
once lost, can never be recovered -
"The time that passes," "Opportunity" and "spoken word".
♥ Three sublime programs unfold before us,
revealing to us the glory of the Higher Life -
"Love," "Humility" and "Good" spirit. "
♥ May the Lord help us, because, in our necessities,
always follow the three rules of blessed salvation -
"Fix in us what we dislike in others."
"We support each other."
"Loving one another"e and Peace for you and all Beings

Yes, Jean Coteau was a marvelous and "acute" man.

Love and Peace for all Beings.

Comment by Eva Libre on April 28, 2012 at 5:27pm

"Le verbe aimer est difficile à conjuguer : son passé n'est pas simple, son présent n'est qu'indicatif, et son futur est toujours conditionnel."

JEAN COCTEAU

When I feel despair surounding me, I look around me and I see Nature, Faith and Grace covering me with sweetness and light ...

(Maui - Hawaii)

Love and Peace for all Beings.

THE PEACE OF WILD THINGS  

When despair for the world grows in me  and I wake in the night at the least sound  in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,  I go and lie down where the wood drake  rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.  I come into the peace of wild things  who do not tax their lives with forethought  of grief. I come into the presence of still water.  And I feel above me the day-blind stars  waiting with their light. For a time  I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.  

— Wendell Berry
