Live, Breathe, Give: A Child’s Wisdom

This week, two quotes from children’s books seem timely:

“To fear is one thing.

To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.”

– Katherine Paterson, Jacob Have I Loved


“Live courage, breathe courage and give courage.”

– Dhan Gopal Mukerji, Gay-Neck: The Story of a Pigeon –


Nourish peace and cultivate loving kindness. Then live calm, breathe calm, and give calm.
