All that we are is a result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.[Buddhist quote on Ellen O’Farrell’s refrigerator]
All grown-ups were just children carefully putting on their grown-up disguises each day and then acting accordingly.
A marriage is hard work and sometimes it’s a bit of a bore. It’s like housework. It’s never finished. You’ve just got to grit your teeth and keep working away at it, day after day.
