4 Reflections On Reflection

Reflect upon your present blessings - of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. CHARLES DICKENS
By three methods we may learn wisdom: first by reflection, which is the noblest; second by imitation, which is the easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. CONFUCIUS
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. THOMAS MERTON
Knowing others is wisdom; knowing yourself is enlightenment. LAO TZU
