Dr. Daisaku Ikeda
Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves...Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now...the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.
Rainer Maria Rilke
When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, you then have the basis for reaching out to the world and going after your dreams for a better life.
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.
Don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens - The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

Now I can see that if you are patient you will almost always get what you want if you are supposed to have it. I...

Just saw the "Patience" commercial with the little boy walking in the concrete. Reminds me of how I need to be when working with my students. haha Loved it!
I see alot of your commercials on our AFN channels. My favorite one is the little boy walking in the freshly smoothed concrete and the fella at the end. It makes me laugh and smile each and everytime I see it. Thank you.
