Announcement: Wish you could change your past? Learn to let go and create a life you love with the Tiny Buddha course!

Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on what you have to gain.

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself.

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

Prefer a loss to a dishonest gain; the one brings pain at the moment, the other for all time.

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.

Life’s blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed by the fire of enthusiasm.

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than hurt yourself trying to put it back together.

Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.

Before someone’s tomorrow has been taken away, cherish those you love, appreciate them today.

If you learn from a loss you have not lost.

Life is a process of becoming. A combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

In this world of change, nothing which comes stays, and nothing which goes is lost.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

Peace of mind is not the absence of conflict from life, but the ability to cope with it.

It isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer; it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens.

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
