"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." Muriel Strode

Today it's Mouissa Zeimer's turn, 86 years old.
"No judging. Not having any demand. To accept, knowing even the most terrible things, knowing you can't understand them, you can't explain them but not to deny the step forward, union, to find the best there is because it's inside everyone. There's high and low, we sometimes hurt but that's also on of my motus, to not hurt on purpose. What I passed on to my children, is first to know how to look, how to listen. There's so many things to hear, so many things to see. And then 3 or 4 essential things. Not to lie, not because it's not moral. Because it's so complicated to lie. You have to remember so much and at the end you're always trapped. Secondly, not to envy and I applied it playing various games, since there's no limit. You get lost in envy, totally lost. You forget what you are, you forget what you want. And then not be a coward, not to hurt someone regard yourself. Go straight. What's going to be, may be."

"The purpose of my life it's to end without being a weight,to keep my dignity and to be respected even in my failures. And I learned one thing from life. It's that we have to be happy with what we have which doesn't mean being poor and say "I feel good here!" At Cartiers, I came in once, "Listen it's wonderful what you have, can I? I just want to look, I can't buy anything, just look." They let me look, they showed me extraordinary precious pieces, I was so happy. Ah, that's really something, he said. I came out rich. Could I have everything, I would have said, " Yes, why don't I have that one.. " But I was rich which all I had seen that I would never have been able to buy."

ha, gotta love this video! EPIC!

  1. A lot of fine principles above. If only we could all live like that. Not easy, but I agree with ALL of them.

    Hope you're feeling better.

  2. YES! And I think trying and awareness of it already counts.
    I'm not really feeling better yet to be honest but thank you :)
