A Quote by paramhansa yogananda on rejoice, cry, birth, death, lifetime, work, and smile

When you came into this world you cried, whereas everyone else rejoiced. During your lifetime, work and serve in such a way that when it is time for you to leave this world, you will smile at parting while the world cries for you. Hold this thought and you will always remember to consider others above yourself.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on squirrel, bee, honey, nuts, work, and providing

The squirrel hoards nuts and the bee gathers honey, without knowing what they do, and they are thus provided for without selfishness or disgrace.

A warm breeze blew through my window like a gentle wave lapping the sandy shore in summer at low tide, and as I took in a breath of air that blanketed my body like tall grass in a field I felt for just that moment in time, like I did when I was a child. I felt that I had not one worry, not one burden, nothing was on my mind accept that breeze that made the curtains swell like balloons.

A Quote by unknown on work, society, religion, trabalho, religiao, sociedade, filosofia, and politica

É preciso distinguir trabalho, sociedade e religião porque são todos clusters importantes no desenvolvimento de uma civilização mas simultaneamente são também perigos emergentes quando não são controlados e direccionados no sentido de canalizar os seus beneficios na direcçao correcta.

A Quote by unknown on god, pain, oppression, joy, difference, believe, bless, and work

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy. And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
