May Virtue

Encouragement: When you need encouragement, think of the qualities the people around you have: this one’s energy, that one’s modesty, another’s generosity, and so on. Nothing is as encouraging as when virtues are visibly embodied in the people around us, when we’re practically showered with them. It’s good to keep this in mind.

Don't Just…

Don't just learn, experience.
Don't just read, absorb.
Don't just change, transform.

Don't just relate, advocate.
Don't just promise, prove.
Don't just criticize, encourage.

Don't just think, ponder.
Don't just take, give.
Don't just see, feel.

Don’t just dream, do.
Don't just hear, listen.
Don't just talk, act.

Don't just tell, show.
Don't just exist, live.”
