      When we encourage our young people,
      let's encourage them like a warm spring breeze.
      It's very important that we genuinely believe,
      "This person will become a far greater individual than I am,"
      and at the same time sincerely respect them.

          "Even if you don’t achieve the results you’d hoped for, the efforts you are making are undoubtedly contributing to your growth and development.

          "...A person who is always ready and eager to learn creates a life of infinite possibility.

          "...Success is a matter of perseverance. It’s important to make a real effort, to try your hardest. You can’t expect results in a day. Keeping at it is what matters."

            It is through interacting with other people
            that our lives are stimulated, energised and enpowered.
            Let's, therefore, cherish every person
            who we come in contact with
            with the utmost of care and concern.

              "In this chapter Shakyamuni Buddha revealed the foremost point he wished to convey to us. ... It is in the passage that reads, 'Therefore, Universal Worthy, if you see a person who accepts and upholds this sutra, you should rise and greet him from afar, showing him the same respect you would a Buddha'"

                "It is the way of the world that whether one is wise or foolish, old or young, one never knows what will happen to one from one moment to the next. Therefore I should first of all learn about death, and then about other things."

                          Not more glad than us Brother! Mrs. B! I'm beginning a campaign right now to start chanting that you want to chant more than you have been! Let me know how effective my prayer is!

                          This thread would not exist without you two!!!

                          That is a fact.

                          Bowing in humble obeisance!!!

                            "Former South African president Nelson Mandela, a dear friend and great human rights champion, values this important lesson he learned in his youth: 'Don’t run away from your problems; face them! Because if you don’t deal with them, they will always be with you. Deal with a problem which arises; face it courageously.'"[1]
