The best Quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh

Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.
If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine. You get in touch with Mother Earth and eating in such a way, you feel in touch with true life, your roots, and that is meditation. If we chew every morsel of our food in that way we become grateful and when you are grateful, you are happy.
Every breath we take, every step we make, can be filled with peace, joy and serenity.
You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.

Recently I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me: "Mama, I'm the ugliest girl I know. I look like a boy with long hair.' And my brain went to 'Oh my god, you're six. Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a sex-year-old's ass?' But I didn't say anything and instead I went home and I made a PowerPoint presentation for her and in that presentation were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us. And these are artists like Michael Jackson and David Bowie and Freddie Mercury and Annie Lennox and Prince and Janis Joplin and George Michael, Elton John. So many artists, her eyes glazed over. But then I said, 'I really want to know why you feel this way about yourself?' And she said 'Well, I look like a boy.' I said, 'What do you think I look like?' And she said, 'You're beautiful.' And I was like, 'Well, thanks!' But I said, 'When people make fun of me, that's what they use. They say that I look like a boy, or I'm too masculine or I have too many opinions, my body is too strong. Do you see me growing my hair?' She said, 'No, Mama.' I said, 'Do you see me changing my body?"
'No, Mama."
'Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?"
'No, Mama."
'Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?"
'Yes, Mama."
So baby-girl, we don't change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl and we help other people to change, so that they can see more kinds of beauty. And to all the artists here, I'm so inspired by all of you. Thank you for being your true selves and for lighting the way for us. I'm so inspired by you guys. There's so much rad happening right now in music. Keep doing it. Keep shining for the rest of us to see. And you, my darling girl, are beautiful and I love you.

Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period. All right?
