2. There are many ways to calm a negative energy without suppresssing or fighting it. You recognize it, you smile to it, and you invite something nicer to come up and replace it; you read some inspiring words, you listen to a piece of beautiful music, you go somewhere in nature, or you do some walking meditation.
3. Always help someone. You might be the only one that does.
4. Sympathy’s easy. You have sympathy for starving children swatting at flies on the late-night commercials. Sympathy is easy because it comes from a position of power. Empathy is getting down on your knees and looking someone else in the eye and realizing you could be them, and that all that separates you is luck.
5. When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.
6. Never cut what you can untie.
7. All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost: the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by frost.
8. There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
