There Is Enough Beauty

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.

Sharing the Joy

“I was walking down the street in New York City one day, when I heard a woman’s voice saying, ‘I was very sick all winter.’ Intrigued, I turned around and saw the woman handing a street person, sitting on the sidewalk, some money. She went on talking to him. ‘I had pneumonia, and every time I started to get better, I’d have a relapse. Now I am finally really getting better, and I just wanted to share the joy.’”
