“Moments of splendor and moments of gloom – they help maintain life’s balance. One thought is key: they all pass...”
Joan Marques

“Is every day an adventure with its own drive?
Or an interlocked link in the chain of our life?
Are we, then, the masters of our own milky way?
Or just conductors, confined to the music of today?”
Joan Marques

“Life is like walking a tightrope:
A balance between turning inward
Often enough to find your happy core
And focusing outward
Often enough to care a little more.
Leaning too much inward
May make you aloof and narcissistic
Leaning too much outward
May make you bitter and pessimistic.
Keeping balance fuels life with hope.”
Joan Marques

“If our words cannot enhance the peace
We should keep quiet and use our ears
The extent of our perception will increase
As we'll be less to blame for others' tears”
Joan Marques

“Simple things bring infinite pleasure. Yet, it takes us a while to realize that. But once simple is in, complex it out - forever.”
Joan Marques
