Yes, we can!

“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping,
to smile without hostility at people and institutions,
to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters;
to be more faithful in our work,
to show greater patience,
to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism:
all these are Things We Can Do. ”
Hermann Hesse

  1. How it adequate it seemed just to ‘like’ this post! I love these words but know the difficulty too; it is so easy to be drawn in to gossip without realising what is happening. Thank you so much today!


    • Big thanks for a very forthright comment! It’s true that living the words of the post is difficult in the world of today but, we just have to make the effort. Small positive deeds, like tiny drops of water, if sustained can turn into a pool! In this case a society (pool) of love, peace and joy! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
