The end of time will not likely occur during our lifetime. But, the end of our time in this life will surely come.
Happiness is not a place where good has banished sorrow. It is a place where both are accepted as part of life.
A loving relationship lives its own life apart from the desires of each lover. Honor it and give it a place along and to the side of your separate selves.
Pain can be your constant companion. Desire can be a nagging screw. Discontent can cloud your eyes and worry will become a pastime. Step away from them, as they are not your friends. Focus instead on finding the joy of life in yourself and others. Leave sorrow in its place behind you and chase, as best you can, the butterfly of simple beauty.
A complement provides encouragement to continue. A complaint makes an end to enjoyment of the task.
