A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life.

― Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth am I Here for?


“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that–warm things, kind things, sweet things–help and comfort and laughter–and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”

― Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
