Our journey on this planet is a great gift. Life is too short, fragile and precious to spend it in anger and unhappiness.

Every day is a chance to be kind, to each other and to ourselves. Every day is a chance to give love, and to receive it, which is just as important. Love in all its forms, or the lack of it, defines and shapes our whole lives for better or ill.

Let us not miss a single chance for the best that love can do for us. For each other.

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
--- Jimi Hendrix

Peace to one and all.
*******************************

Some things to ponder:

"A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave."

--Mohandas Gandhi

"Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last. Imagine that you are doing this but that it is essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature... in order to found that edifice on its unavenged tears. Would you consent to be the architect on those conditions? Tell me. Tell the truth."

"And can you accept the idea that the men for whom you are building would agree to receive their happiness from the unatoned blood of a little victim? And accepting it would remain happy forever?"

To all of these questions, Alyosha replies "No."

Ivan Karamazov to his brother Alyosha, in The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
