About changes in many perspectives, about the good side of changes and willing to change in good. About Optimism, about support about not giving up. About beauty and open eyes, about the relativity of things, about the gentle that is strong, the fragile that holds a world. About Us.

~ St. John of the Cross

I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of thegreatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and mostobvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsityof conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues,which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven,thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.
~ Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

Begin to weave and God will give the thread.
~ German Proverb
