If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

Being rich

Being rich is not about how much money you get. It’s about how much meaning you give.

You don’t need a lot of stuff to be rich. In fact, the less you need, the richer you are.

Be genuinely joyful, and you are as rich as anyone can ever be. See the real beauty in even the smallest things, and every day, every situation becomes an unending source of richness.

Being rich is being able to lovingly give of yourself. And that depends not on the size of your bank account, but on your simple choice to do so.

When it comes to being rich, what’s on the inside is vastly more important than what’s on the outside. Being rich is feeling rich, and you can do that in any circumstance.

Being rich is fully appreciating and expressing the immense value your life has in every moment. Being rich is how you can be right now, and always.
