Waking up in the morning, you
can recognize 'I’m alive' and that there are twenty-four hours for me to live,
to learn how to look at living beings with the eyes of compassion. If you are
aware that you are alive, that you have twenty-four hours to create new joy,
this would be enough to make yourself happy and the people around you happy.
- Thich Nhat Hanh, "Interbeing
with Thich Nhat Hanh"
