All that one denies, because one has not the courage to accept; all that offends, because it tempts; all that angers, because it controls; all that we refuse to see, to hear, to touch, to taste; all that we slander, abuse, loathe, abhor, and despise; all of this will defeat or destroy us in the end.

No one should be held to blame, censured, for the lies others live. Between hypocrisy and truth, there is tolerance.

All that we at first find objectionable, repellent, painful, vile, when observed with an open mind and heart, may be transformed into, lead  or open onto, a source of wonder, beauty, joy, and fulfilment.

A vast surrender is your only strength. Life does not give itself to one who tries to keep all of its advantages at once.
