Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.
There's a lot of love out there, love to God, your wife, family, love to all sentient beings. We strive, look deep inside ourselves, open doors never opened before, live through new hardships - we shine. Hard work will always be payed. Day by day, we feel the weight of all that what surrounds us, the heaviness of suffering. But he who keeps humble, who acts in an unselfish way is rewarded at all times. That man, when he looks back, he can see truth and beauty in the path he trailed.
Thank you for beeing there Rick, for helping us to find light within ourselves . . . Peace man!
