Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.” – Lao Tzu

  2. I have always been amazed at this wonderful flower and at Christmas time I received a bouquet of flowers with One such flower in amongst the others…
    In life too there are those who stand out giving their mystery and showing others their beauty in wisdom…
    But as your quote truly states Mastering Ourselves is true power…

    Eddie you stand out in your wisdom…… and are always reminding us of the beauty to be found around and within..

    Many blessings ~Dreamwalker

    • Your glowing kindness is very appreciated Dreamwalker and nearly overwhelming.
      The creator of the flower’s beauty deserve’s all the credit here. I merely captured
      it at a special moment. Thank you dear friend, Eddie

  3. Gorgeous photo and excellent quote. Your words are serendipitous as I have just been writing in my journal that it is self-mastery [mastery of the little self] that I seek. Bless you.
