The best way to get along with people is not to expect them to be like you.

No matter the situation, never let your emotions overpower your intelligence.

When it comes to being gentle, start with yourself. Don’t get upset with your imperfections. Being disappointed by failure is understandable, but it shouldn’t turn into bitterness or spite directed at yourself. It’s a great mistake because it leads nowhere to get angry because you are angry, upset at being upset, disappointed because you are disappointed.

We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them in to the future with us.

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.

I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness. And yet I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.

I am afraid to show you who I really am, because if I show you who I really am, you might not like it – and that’s all I’ve got.

Don’t be pushed by your problems; be led by your dreams.

What if I told you 10 years from now your life would be exactly the same. Doubt you’d be happy. So why are you afraid of change?

The past does not have to be your prison. You have a voice in your destiny. You have a say in your life. You have a choice in the path you take.
