ONE DROP
One drop of water helps to swell the ocean; a spark of fire helps give light to the world. None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act. –Hannah More, English Writer (1745-1833)

BOUND TOGETHER
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. –Attributed to Chief Seattle, Native American Chief (1786-1866)

SPONTANEOUS CHANGE
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. –Lao Tzu, Chinese Philosopher and Poet (c. Sixth Century BCE)

OPENING TO THE SUN OF COMPASSION
Compassion is like the sun. We do not need to create the sun; we simply wait until the clouds part and the sun will shine. –The Happy Buddha

LIVING PEACEFULLY
Create health, beauty and permanence and learn to live peacefully, not only with our fellow humans but also with nature. –Satish Kumar (‘Soil, Soul, Society’)

SEEDS
All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. –Anon

BE GLAD
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars. –Henry Van Dyke, American Author and Clergyman (1852-1933)
