When you obey laws of health, your body is your friend. When you love God, nature is your friend. When you love man, God is your friend. When you love hard work, success is your friend. When you possess an understanding heart, peace and harmony are your friends. Everywhere you have a friend. In all things there is a friend for you.
-- Swami Omkarananda Saraswati (1930-2000), guru and founder Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas
