You are conscious thinking person in an amazingly beautiful and complex
universe. This is a gift. What did you do to earn being born? Every minute,
every second is a bonus. Do you love? Are you loved? Another bonus! Have
you looked at a sunset, a tree, a baby's tiny fingers? Beauty, pure beauty. You
can enjoy that beauty and be moved by it. You can't explain why some things
are beautiful, but you know that they are.
Don't let lies deafen you to truth. Don't let ugliness blind you to beauty. Don't
let evil take away your taste for good.
