My mind, my thoughts, my words

Some of my favourite quotes and idioms

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. (Albert Einstein)

Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit comfortably on your shoulder.
But why bother with Happiness in the first place –
It is better to lead a worthy life with tears than a happy one lacking meaning.

The secret of happiness is to lower your expectations

If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
(Nelson Mandela)
