Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

Always with you

The best experience you ever had is still part of you. The most beautiful day you have ever enjoyed still lives within your heart.

All the love you’ve ever known is yours in this very moment. Though it arose from specific conditions, its value now goes far beyond them and continues long after those conditions have faded.

What’s even better is that you can take that value and expand on it, at any time, in any place. The love, the beauty, the experiences that you treasure can serve as the basis for even more richness.

People, places, events and things pass in and out of your life. What you’re left with is whatever you choose to keep.

And what you choose to keep, what you truly value and appreciate and treasure, sets the stage for what will be. The more you choose to see the good and positive aspects of each experience, the more fulfilling life will grow.

You never have to struggle to regain what you think is lost. The best is always with you, and can grow into much, much more.

— Ralph Marston
