What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such"
Author: Henry Miller

Today's Quote

Athos, secondo il solito, né lo dissuadeva, né lo incoraggiava. Athos era del parere che bisognava lasciare ad ognuno la sua libera scelta. Non dava mai consigli senza esserne richiesto e bisognava anche chiederglieli due volte.- In generale, - egli diceva, - i consigli si chiedono soltanto per non seguirli, o, se si sono seguiti, per aver qualcuno a cui poter rimproverare d'averli dati."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
