Closing Words – The Greatest Traveler

“The Greatest Traveler is not the one who went ten times around the world, but the one who went once around himself.”

“Le plus grand Voyageur n’est pas celui qui a fait dix fois le tour du monde, mais celui qui a fait une seule fois le tour de lui-même”.

Ghandi – my Hero

Wisdom of Happiness

 

3 great quotes about Happiness from the Greek philosophers:

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less”

Beauty will save the World

« Beauty will save the world. »

« La beauté sauvera le monde. »
La beauté qui sauvera le monde, c’est cette beauté qui unifiera l’intérieur et l’extérieur, l’être et le paraître, la forme et le contenu, le corps et l’esprit.

Dostoïevski

Time to be Nice

Like many people, we have been shocked to learn about the new terrorist attack in France, hitting again many innocents and childrens just enjoying life by the sea.

As Isaac Asimov said, “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent”, and what we have seen in Nice is another example of ignorance and blind hate.

In these tough moments, I believe it’s always good to look inside ourselves for wisdom and remember some great leaders.

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
