Thich Nhat Hanh

One compassionate word, action or thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring him joy. One word can give comfort and confidence, destroy doubt, help someone avoid a mistake, reconcile a conflict, or open the door to liberation.
With compassion in our heart, every thought, word, and deed can bring about a miracle.

Thich Nhat Hanh from the book Teachings on Love.

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.

  1. It is easy to forget how simple it is to improve someone else’s day with a kind word. It is also even more easy to simply speak kindness to others. Thank you for sharing this. I hope things in your life are going fantastically.
