Seek to persuade
The sea wave
To break –
You will persuade
Me no more easily.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions,
but in having few wants.”
“I’ll never fight for someone attention.
Either I have it,
Or I don’t.”
“Count your age by friends
and not years.
Count your life by smiles

“I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religion than it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”
“I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own — a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism.”
“I do not believe in the immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.”
“If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for a reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.”
-Albert Einstein, German-born American physicist
