441. Roles

Your role depends on your goal.

Colleen C. Barrett said, “When it comes to getting things done, we need fewer architects and more bricklayers.” And just know that when it comes to dreaming up ways to please the eye, ignite the intellect, and transport the emotions, precisely the opposite is true.

335. Joy Internal

Things can give pleasant distraction for a time. But, take it all away and enter into silence with one question: What is left?

It must be something inside that gives joy, or even mere happiness will always be elusive.

229. Flowers

Son, never buy an arrangement of flowers off the shelf. Learn how to put your own together.

It’s simpler than you think. Pick a main color that will serve as the background, then pick one either complimentary or contrasting color. You can use as little as one flower for the contrast. At least one of them should be able to diffuse its pleasing fragrance throughout the room.

203. Please

Please is a magic word not because it makes things happen, but because it goes with everything.
