Sample text

Antisthenes, Greek philosopher (444 BC – 371 BC) Jealousy is a complex, often ignored emotion. It is usually thought of as being negative, as in spite and envy. Jealousy also has a positive side. When we aspire to be like someone, we see her/him as a positive role model. This is positive jealousy. In this way, we can honour another without envy. It helps us to stretch, to learn and to grow. I recognise, honour and am inspired by the achievements of others. 33 A n c i e n t W i s d o m f o r t h e m o d e rn m i n d The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.

Neighbours are strangers. Adjacent countries are mortal enemies. All of this division inevitably leads to the fall of us all. We are one people. We are one planet. 52 Life and death, health and happiness When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.

Chuang-Tzu, Chinese philosopher (369 BC – 286 BC) It is from our inner strength and valour, that our true value and worth is determined. Our value in life is not determined by external things such as how much money we make. Our value in life is determined by our inner strength, our values and our convictions. We must cherish and value our inner selves and not become too distracted by or focused on that which is on the outside.
