Looking for peace is like looking for a turtle with a moustache. You won't be able to find it. But when your hearty is read, it will come looking for you.

Read Yourself

Read yourself, not books. Truth isn't outside, that's only memory, not wisdom. Memory without wisdom is like an empty thermos bottle - if you don't fill it, it's useless.

"Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day".
