“Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson (via thatlitsite)

“You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride.”

– Buddha (via thecalminside)
