In every human being, there is a heart that pumps blood that makes up the blood flow of the entire body.
When the heart stops, blood turns cold, and the human will die.

Remember always that you are just a visitor here,
a traveller passing through.
Your stay is but short, and the moment of your departure unknown.
None can live without toil,
and a craft that provides your needs is a blessing indeed.
But if you toil without rest, fatigue and weariness will overtake you,
and you will be denied the joy that comes from labour’s end.
Speak quietly and kindly and be not forward with either opinions or advice.
If you talk much, this will make you deaf to what others say,
and you should know that there are few so wise
that they cannot learn from others.

but far when praise and thanks are being offered.
Take small account of might, wealth and fame,
for they soon pass and are forgotten.
Instead, nurture love within and strive to be a friend to all.
Truly, compassion is a balm for many wounds.
Treasure silence when you find it, and while being mindful of your duties
set time aside, to be alone with yourself.
Cast off pretence and self-deception and see yourself as you really are.
Despite all appearance, no one is really evil.
They are let astray by ignorance.
If you ponder this truth always you will offer more light,
rather than blame and condemnation.
You, no less than all beings, have Buddha nature within.
Your essential Mind is pure.
Therefore, when defilements cause you to stumble and fall,
let not remorse nor dark foreboding cast you down.
Be of good cheer and with this understanding, summon strength and walk on.
Faith is like, a lamp, and wisdom makes the flame burn bright.
Carry this lamp always
and in good time the darkness will yield and you will abide in the Light.
People grow old by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin,
but to give up, wrinkles the soul…
There is in every being’s heart a love of wonder…. the undaunted challenge of events.
In the central place of every heart, there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage… So long are you young… When… your heart is covered with sorrows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then are you grown old.
— General Douglas MacArthur
You do not have much time, you need to focus
(on) using the least time to reach your dreams/goals
When someone looks down on you, you need to put in more effort
When someone jeers at you, you need to tell yourself
‘I will never give up.’
You need to take good care of yourself, and also those who are fighting this battle with you
You need to prove
(that) You did not make the wrong choice to take on this road
You, do not have much time.]
