Language...has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.
- Paul Tillich
The secret of contentment is knowing how to enjoy what you have, and to be able to lose all desire for things beyond your reach.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.
Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
