Don’t make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

If you do nothing unexpected, nothing unexpected happens.

Don’t promise when you are happy, don’t reply when you are angry, and don’t decide when you are sad.

Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.

Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places.

Your actions are your only true belongings.

Actions speak louder than words, but not nearly as often.

Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.

A wise man makes his own decisions; an ignorant man follows public opinion.

It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?

What you do today is important, because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.

The grass is always greener where you water it.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle, or you can live as if everything is a miracle.

You are your choices.

When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.
