Is it worth it?
“When Buddha was on his death-bed he noticed his young disciple Anan was weeping. ’Why are you weeping, Anan?’ he asked. ’Because the light of the world is about to be extinguished and we will be in darkness.’ The Buddha summoned up all his remaining energy and spoke what were to be his final words on earth: ’Anan, Anan, be a light unto yourself.’”
- Buddhist Scripture

“I revere those who are kind, compassionate, and loyal. I respect the honorable who keep their word. I admire those who step beyond their comfort zone. I believe a true test of character lies in how a person treats those who seem to have nothing to offer in return. I admire the ones who perform kind acts and are not tempted by glory. I adore quiet sincerity. These are the people in love with life.”

He smiled and waved at me. I felt the transformation through my heart.
