If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money,
it is clear that they own you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,

Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie

I should not mind a bit.
but if a friend of mine had a sorrow
and refused to allow me to share it,

I would move back again and again and beg to be admitted
so that I might share in what I was entitled to share.
If he thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him,
I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation.
- Oscar Wilde
