If the culture doesn't work, don't buy it.

Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent.

Accept what you are able to do and what you are not able to do.

Sometimes you can't believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel.

Accept the past as the past, without denying it or discarding it.

Love always wins.

Love is the only rational act.

Love each other or perish.

If you accept you are going to die at anytime, then you might not be as ambitious as you are.

If you really want something, then you will make your dreams happen.

There is no secure ground like family.

If you are in bed, you are dead.

Don't let go too soon, but don't hang on too long.

Money and power are not substitutes for tenderness.

Be compassionate and take responsibility for everyone.

Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.

Be as human as you can be.

There is no such thing as too late in life.

Learn how to forgive yourself and forgive others.

Death ends life not a relationship.

You're not a wave, you are a part of the ocean.

Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.
