172 - Simple

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. 
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Dalai Lama

171 - Time

What time is it?
What is time? Now that is a much harder question.
I just listened to some very smart physicists say that given the right speed and direction
we could see our past and changing the direction the future.
Don't think I'm ready for that...

170 - Paradise

It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are... 
than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.
Henry David Thoreau

169 - Star Signatures

If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.
 Mitsugi Saotome
