Wherever you live is your temple, if you treat it like one.

True freedom comes when we follow the natural goodness of our heart.

The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?

In one’s family, respect and listening are the source of harmony.

Words have the power to destroy or heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

Most of the sorrows of the earth human cause for themselves.

Love in the past is only a memory. Love in the future is a fantasy. Only here and now can we truly love.

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

– Eleanor Roosevelt

i am malala

I finished reading I am Malala, written by Malala Yousafzai, in April of 2015, and tonight, after almost a year of waiting, I finally watched the movie.

Malala is my idol, and a true heroine of our time. At her short age she has started a worldwide movement in favor of women’s rights, in favor of education and against violent political regimes like the Taliban. If all this wasn’t enough, she is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history. She achieved all this before she was 18 years old.

Malala’s story is inspiring, moving and significant, and she must have had a lot of help in writting this book as it is entertaining and easy to read.

I recommend everybody to watch the movie, and when you do, do it with your children and grandchildren. But before you watch it, read the book. The movie is just a good ending for the book, but is not a substitute for it. To understand it all, to understand her, to understand her cause and her movement, and to understand what each one of us has to do, you must read the book. I am Malala should be required as a text book in all highschools around the world.

I have two copies of I am Malala,  which I am going to give away for free. If you are interested leave me a message or send me an email.

You can read my full review of the book in GoodReads.com
