Meaning of Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy. Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh.
And the past held only this wisdom: that love was a damaging mistake, and its accomplice, hope, a treacherous illusion. And whenever those twin poisonous flowers began to sprout in the parched land of that field, Mariam uprooted them. She uprooted them and ditched them before they took hold.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart
Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you.
To be loved for what one is, is the greatest exception. The great majority love in others only what they lend him, their own selves, their version of him.
