Your good intentions are not enough; you have to be artful.
We may be filled with goodwill; we may be motivated by the desire to make the other person happy; but out of our clumsiness, we make them unhappy.
Walking, eating, breathing, talking, and working are all opportunities to practice creating happiness inside you and around you.
Mindful living is an art, and each of us has to train to be an artist.
Thich Nhat Hanh
