In today’s materialistic society, if you have money and power, you seem to have many friends. But they are not friends of yours; they are the friends of your money and power. When you lose your wealth and influence, you will find it very difficult to track these people down.
-14th Dalai Lama
If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all.
“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
