Be gentle first with yourself.
– Lama Yeshe
First renew your own body, mind and emotions;
be kind, compassionate, and gentle with yourself.
Then use your regenerated strength and commitment
to be of service to the less fortunate.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Rest when you’re weary.
Refresh and renew yourself, your body,
your mind, your spirit.
Then get back to work.
