“Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, work only for the best and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”—Christian D. Larsen (via truetothebone)

Japan meets Peru, Peru meets America, America meets England, England meets Denmark, Denmark meets France, you know. Total integration of cultures. I guess it’s the future, no?”
Anaïs Basu’s line. Basu is a French textile designer in love with India and its textile traditions and craft. In India, she discovered “a world full of creativity, joy, energy, hospitality and such a rich culture.” Any of us who have been can attest to this!
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”—Aristotle (via larmoyante)
