War does not determine who is right – only who is left.

Bertrand Russell

I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.

Friedrich Nietzsche

This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.

Hannah Arendt

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.


What you see and hear depends on a great deal on where you are standing.

C.S Lewis

Listen to silence. It has so much to say.


What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness.

Leo Tolstoy

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

Lao Tzu

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Khalil Gibran

There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.

Aldous Huxley

Evil destroys even itself.


Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.


We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.

Herman’s Hesse

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Marcus Aurelius

La guerra no determina quién tiene razón, solo quién queda. Bertrand Russell No me molesta que me hayas mentido, me molesta que de ahora en adelante no te pueda creer. Friedrich Nietzsche Este es el precepto por el que he vivido: prepárate para lo peor; cuenta con el mejor; y toma lo que viene. Hannah Arendt: No serás castigada por tu ira, serás castigada por tu ira. Buda Lo que ves y oyes depende en gran medida de dónde estés parado. C.S Lewis Escucha el silencio. Tiene mucho que decir Rumi: Qué extraña ilusión es suponer que la belleza es bondad. Leo Tolstoi Cuando dejo ir lo que soy, me convierto en lo que podría ser. Lao Tzu Fuera del sufrimiento han surgido las almas más fuertes; Los personajes más masivos están marcados con cicatrices. Khalil Gibran: Solo hay un rincón del universo que puedes estar seguro de mejorar, y ese es tu propio ser. Aldous HuxleyEvil se destruye incluso a sí mismo. Aristole Justo cuando una serpiente muda su piel, debemos arrojar nuestro pasado una y otra vez. Buda Somos sol y luna, querido amigo; Somos mar y tierra. No es nuestro propósito convertirnos el uno en el otro; es reconocerse, aprender a ver al otro y honrarlo por lo que es: el opuesto y el complemento del otro. Hesse de Herman Cuando te levantes por la mañana, piensa en el privilegio precioso que es estar vivo: respirar, pensar, disfrutar, amar. Marco Aurelio
