It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 9, Page 29, Book 17


It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

the answers we seek so desperately have actually been right in front of us all along


The common eye sees only the outside of things, and judges by that, but the seeing eye pierces through and reads the heart and the soul, finding there capacities which the outside didn't indicate or promise, and which the other kind couldn't detect. 
 Mark Twain 

We search for comfort, security, and fulfillment outside of ourselves, we feel lost when people don’t fit the molds we put them in or we don’t obtain the dream job we were so certain was meant for us.  But when we make the choice to start seeing with the heart rather than our eyes, we find the good that was there all along.  For when the heart is clear, our eyes are too.

Sometimes we just have to think with the heart.


Same old eyes, same old world but the difference is how you look at what is in front of you, not what it is.

I think I need to start looking at things from the heart's perspective more than my eyes. Good reminder.

I agree that the good is always there. Sometimes we may have to dig a little deeper to find it, but it's always there. Seeing with our hearts would help us find it more readily.

Have a super weekend.

I found this that I loved, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." Your heart has to be open to see.

i think looking at the world through the hearts perspective is the way to go. "Same old eyes, same old world but the difference is how you look at what is in front of you, not what it is."
