It is the natural and perennial role of parents to teach, to warn, to protect, to guide, to help, to prepare, to ‘raise’ their children. Children, for their part, have their own predispositions, nature, dreams and likings. The result will be blending of the two, of the past, the present and the future. And thus humanity proceeds on its evolutionary path, epitomised and moulded in each of the Earth’s hundreds of millions of families. The family is the first and greatest school of love, peace and happiness on Earth. As for all other human groups, there should be no confrontation, no conflict, no breakage of the family, only give and take, understanding, love and cooperation. For these are the ways of ascent of humanity.

Love is to think what good we can do and what happiness we can give.
Love must become the subject of serious scientific study. Loved children are healthier, happier, more peaceful children. Loved husbands have seldom heart attacks. Loved plants grow better.

Seek books which you will keep and read time and again for your happiness, enrichment and life fulfilment.
Remain innocent and naive like a child during all your life. Only the innocent, loving acceptance of the greatness of Creation will guide you well.

Those marked Joy, Laughter, Happiness, Love, Passion for Life, Gratitude for Life.
Robert Muller Quotes: T
Tell me who your heroes are and I will know who you are.
The age of reason is not sufficient for human fulfilment. We must now enter the age of love: love for ourselves, for humanity, for our planet, for our wondrous Universe and for its mysterious Master.

The richest product of advance, old age is wisdom and story telling.
The same way as the Hopis sing to their corn to make it grow, so should we sing to our whole being, to our body, to our eyes, to our heart, to our mind, to all our helpers of life, the trillions of little cells who work together to make us life. A mother sings to her child. She as very good reason for doing that. A couple sings and dances when falling in love. The whole world must become a Paradise and learn to sing and dance together. World cooperation must take the form of a festival, of a joyous love event.
The sand of my life is running out.. Is it white, black or golden sand?
