If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.

You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. 

It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky

Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark
