There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.
“A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering.”
- Dalai Lama XIV,The Art of Happiness
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Poetry by Henry Wadsworth
It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives.
If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
