PHILOSOPHY

Be conscious - Think different

Be the change you wish to see in the world (Ghandi)

Life is a beautiful gift - Life is a conscious game

Happiness is a decision (Amma)

"Dans la vie, il y a deux sortes d €™individus : ceux qui regardent le monde tel qu'il est et se demandent pourquoi ? Et ceux qui imaginent le monde tel qu'il devrait etre et se disent pourquoi pas ?"
Georges Bernard Shaw

L €™avenir nous tourmente, le passe nous retient, c €™est pour ca que le present nous echappe." Flaubert

Le bonheur c'est le chemin

Si vous pensez que l'aventure est dangereuse, je vous propose la route, elle est mortelle (Paulo Coelho)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
