The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.
—Ernest Hemingway (via lazyyogi)
Making others happy, through kindness of speech and sincerity of right advice, is a sign of true greatness. To hurt another soul by sarcastic words, looks, or suggestions, is despicable.
—Paramahamsa Yogananda (via lazyyogi)
This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.
The significance is hiding in the insignificant. Appreciate everything.
—Eckhart Tolle (via theimportanceofbeingpureatheart)

The fault is in the one who blames. Spirit sees nothing to criticize.
