- When it comes to people with whom we interact regularly, we have a special opportunity. If we practice consistently saying what is true in an honest and loving way, again and again over time, it can bring about deep changes for the other person as well as us.
- Deliberate and voluntary reduction of wants promotes real happiness and contentment.
- Happiness itself is sufficient excuse. Beautiful things are right and true; so beautiful actions are those pleasing to the gods. Wise men have an inward sense of what is beautiful and the highest wisdom is to trust this intuition and be guided by it. The answer to the last appeal of what is right lies within a man's own breast. Trust thyself.
