To deny your gifts is an offensive against yourself.

Therefore, love what is before you.
Your imagination takes you there.
Therefore, love what you have never known before.

- Pleasures of the body are one of the joys of life.
Too much pleasure makes you dull.

The greatest pleasure comes from doing the right thing.
The right thing comes from a generous heart and a thoughtful mind.
