"We’ve all felt the power of someone’s care to melt our armor. When we feel upset, often not until someone cares enough to listen or give us a hug are we able to melt down and cry. When someone says to us, as Thich Nhat Hanh suggests, ‘Darling, I care about your suffering,’ a deep healing begins."
~ Tara Brach

"When we practice smiling peacefully and calmly, our peace can permeate the entire universe. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Awaken with a smile, O armor'd soldiers. The day begins with Life; Death is not yet our realm to dwell in.
