"Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others… By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves."

Gordon B. Hinckley  (via takke3x)

"As we were looking at the fire and watching the sparks fly into the darkened sky, I thought that I really liked Anne and felt so comfortable with her, as although she eminated such an inner peace and deep wisdom, she was not trying to show me the truth of what she seemed to have found, but was merely showing me the direction and encouraging me to keep looking for it. This made me think that it would be more important to start making more of my own spiritual experiences, so that they would be my own and not someone elses, and thus more lasting."
