Words To Live By (A Collection)


Hello. I hope you might enjoy some of these treasures I uncovered tonight. I’ve come to learn that authentic happiness and joy come from freedom. We all seek freedom in one way or another. When I’m discontent, I typically hold myself bondage, trapped by my own mind. There is a common theme to these quotes: Live for yourself, not for others, but still be of service to others. At least that’s what I got out of it =) One love
