L'optimisme, ce n'est pas le refus de voir ce qui ne va pas, c'est le désir de ne pas s'y attarder. // Donne moi le courage de changer les choses que je peux changer, la sérénité d'accepter celles que je ne peux pas changer, et la sagesse de distinguer entre les deux. (Marc Aurèle) // Don't raise your voice; improve your argument. (Desmond Tutu) // Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)


(Extract of) Paradox of our times on SlideShare

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families
More conveniences, but less time

We have more degrees, but less common sense
More knowledge, but less judgment

We have more experts, but more problems
More medecine, but less wellness

We multiplied our possessions, but reduce our valuers
We talk too much, love too little and lie too often

We've learned how to make living, but not a life
We've added years to life, not life to years

We buy more, enjoy it less
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
But have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors
We've split the atom, but not our prejudice,
We've learn to rush, but not to wait

We've higher incomes, but lower morals


Conclusion : Every day, every hour, every minute is special and you don't know if it will be your last, so enjoy now not later
