Goodness is the only investment which never fails.
You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend or not.

You must have a place to which you can go, in your heart, your mind, or your house, almost every day, where you do not know what you owe anyone or what anyone owes you. You must have a place you can go to where you do not know what your work is or who you work for, where you do not know who you are married to or who your children are.
Maybe we need different places for different phases of our lives. Maybe cherished places remain alive inside us even if we have to move on–our attachment to the earth not thinned, but widened. Still, I worry over the pile of fragments in my past, the running of one place into another. Wherever I am is cluttered with the memory of dozens of other landscapes.
