Inspiration

"I am a companion to all who fear You, and of those who keep your precepts."
Psalm 119:63

The Six Mistakes of Man

1. The illusion that personal gain is made up of crushing others

2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected

3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it

4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences

5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and study.

6. Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.

Marcus Tullius Cicero


Thought for the day:

The mightiest works have been accomplished by men who somehow kept their ability to dream great dreams.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
