Rivers do not drink their own water
Trees do not eat their own fruit
The sun does not shine on itself
Flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves
Living for others is a rule of nature
We are all born to help each other, no matter how difficult it is
Life is good when you are happy
But much better when others are happy because of you

The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
Can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things? Giving birth and nourishing, having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control: this is the supreme virtue.
