Beautiful things will happen to you if you do good things to other people. This will generate good karma.
I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment.
Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Not to live for the day, that would be materialistic — but to treasure the day. I realize that most of us live on the skin — on the surface — without appreciating just how wonderful it is simply to be alive at all.
Look, whenever I hear or read I’m beautiful, I simply don’t understand it … I’m certainly not beautiful in any conventional way. I didn’t make my career on beauty.
I’m not beautiful. My mother once called me an ugly duckling. But, listed separately, I have a few good features.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
A woman can be beautiful as well as intellectual.
What a strange world. We trade our days for things.
Walk towards the good in life and one day you will arrive.
I will follow you, my love, to the edge of all our days, to our very last tomorrows.
The beautiful thing about young love is the truth in our hearts that it will last forever.
We all wear scars, find someone who makes yours feel beautiful.
I have seen your darkest nights and brightest days and I want you to know that I will be there forever loving you in dusk.
Don’t give up now. Chances are your best kiss, your hardest laugh, and your greatest day are still yet to come.
What is the age of death? Not even a couple of moments. Life is a progression, it’s not a matter of a day or two!
It’s dark in the middle of the day, the sun is defeated by its shadow, squeeze the oil from your soul, and light the wick, Come let’s light a lamp again!
Truth that is naked is the most beautiful.
Everything is beautiful only so long as it does not concern us.
Each day is a little life.
