How often does it happen that one comes across a sentence that state a fact of life that is so simple and yet so profound that one is amazed by the inherent wisdom that the words portray. I stumbled upon these two, recently :-
“Life is just an illusion in the sea of constant change and impermanence, the enactment of past samskaras and the creation of new ones to be later manifested”.
- Barbara Pidgeon, a spiritual coach
“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorb the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair".
- Mitch Albom in The five people you meet in heaven
