“Every day, God gives us, as well as the Sun,
a moment when it is possible to change anything
that is causing us unhappiness.
The magic moment when a “yes” or a “no”
can change our whole existence.
Every day we try to pretend
that we do not see that moment,
that is does not exist,
that today is the same as yesterday
and that tomorrow will be the same too.
However, anyone who pays close attention
to his day will discover the magic moment,
It might be hidden in the instant
that we put the key in the door in the morning,
in the moment of silence after supper,
in the thousand and one things
that appear to us to be the same,
This moment exists,
a moment in which all the strength of the stars
flows through us
and allows us to perform miracles.”—Paulo Coelho
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”—― Roald Dahl (via justbesplendid)
“It’s not given to people to judge what’s right or wrong. People have eternally been mistaken and will be mistaken, and in nothing more than in what they consider right and wrong.”— Leo Tolstoy (via ancora-imparo)
“It is not about how others are or how society is. The most important thing is to ask yourself, “What should I do?” and “What can I do?” One who stands up with moral courage and conviction can change society and create waves of transformation around the world.”—Daisaku Ikeda (via yuugen-reflections)
