The heart that gives—gathers!

Dear All,

Love cures people, both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. Love is the greatest refreshment in life. The giving of Love is an education in itself.

There are words which sever hearts more than sharp swords; there are words the point of which sting the heart through the course of a whole life. Feelings are everywhere -- let us be gentle. If we judge people, we have no time to love them.

The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. When we reach the heart of life, we shall find beauty in all things.

The heart that gives—gathers. A day without laughter is a day wasted. 7 days without a laugh makes one heart weak.

There is much satisfaction in work well done, but there can be no happiness equal to the joy of finding a heart that understands.

If we create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing. A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones. The heart sees better than the eye.

The human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return. In your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go and sheltered so may thrive and grow.

If a man be gracious to strangers, it shows that he is a citizen of the world, and his heart is no island, cut off from other islands, but a continent that joins them.

A heart in love with beauty never grows old. Our heart often knows things before our mind does. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

With Love, Amma-Naana
