Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But, since no one was listening, everything must be said again.

Love and humility

Don’t set out to prove to the world how much you care. Just put your caring into action, letting go of any need for everyone to know about it.

You will not find true fulfillment in the praise of others. Seek fulfillment in the knowledge that you’re quietly doing what’s right, for the right reasons.

Don’t be obsessed with answering to public opinion. Answer instead to truth, genuine integrity, competence, compassion, generosity.

When you’re making a positive difference, it doesn’t matter what others are thinking or saying about you. Focus on your effectiveness, not on your image.

Life offers countless opportunities for substantive achievement, enrichment, connection, and transcendence. What a shame it would be to waste even a small moment on superficial nonsense.

Experience the limitless potential when love joins forces with humility. And let the unique value of your life unfold to its fullest extent.

— Ralph Marston
