Don’t let past relationships ruin your future happiness. Scars remind us of where we’ve been, not where we are going.

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t destroy, denial does. Forgetfulness doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.

I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go.

Pain can change you, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a bad change. Take that pain and turn it into wisdom.

We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.

Eventually you will come to realize that love heals everything, and love is all there is.

Wisdom is nothing more than healed pain.

To ensure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.
