Clinging Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Clinging from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.

you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.

Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
