If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of doubts of my own.
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Friday, August 1, 1997


Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful. Give joy, and you will be joyful. Offer fulfillment, and you will be fulfilled.

Even in the most painful times -- especially in the painful times -- absorb and enjoy the beauty that is around you. There is no virtue in keeping yourself miserable. Always, there is beauty to be found, and it is yours to enjoy.

Drink in the beauty that is around you, and you’re able to give joy to others. Be thankful for the beauty and abundance of life, and it will grow.

When you look for beauty you will find it, even in the most difficult circumstances. And that is when you need it most. Remember, life can be beautiful, and it will be if only you will let it be.

— Ralph Marston
