10% of what we read,

95% of what we teach others.

and each of us has the ability to make

or how important we believe we are.

regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.

without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.
