Inspired By: George Sand
Let us accept truth, even when it surprises us and alters our views.
One is happy once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness: simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand was the pen name of French writer Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin. She was a novelist, memoirist, and female activist. Read more about her here.
