Life is mostly froth and bubble; Two things stand like stone: - Kindness in another's trouble, Courage in your own. (Adam Lindsay Gordon)
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into a flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. (Albert Schweitzer)
Never get tired of doing little things for others. Sometimes, those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.
Children are like flowers, let them bloom by giving them your warm smiles, your gentle words and your air of confidence. You'll be amazed at your own garden.
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.
(The Dalai Lama)
Goodness is the only investment which never fails. (Henry David Thoreau)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. (Leo Buscaglia)
There is a wonderful, mystical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life -- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -- are always attained by giving them to someone else.

oh, by the way, in 16 days, we're all gonna go crazy for 3 weeks in a row. Doesn't that just sound appealing? O.O
I am almost done with Beautiful Creatures which I bought just yesterday in Ikano. It's 500+ worth of pages and pretty well written and the pace is fast enough. Though I don't feel much about Ethan and Lena. Or maybe I'm just too desensitized? Come holidays, I'll get myself something more serious like The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. And Beatrice and Virgil. :DD Once I get over with Beautiful Creatures, which will be roughly two hours later, I'll go drown myself in reference books. Seriously. Haha.
Don't believe me? I'll be sprouting add maths formulas tomorrow in front of you guys. ;p
