The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and focus on what could go right.

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

If you can’t change the circumstances, change your perspective.

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.

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

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

Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.

More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.

If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

If we look at the world with a love of life, the world will reveal its beauty to us.

What we see is mainly what we look for.

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.

Love is not blind; it simply enables one to see things others fail to see.

We need not think alike to love alike.

A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.

How we remember, what we remember and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

It isn’t our position but our disposition that makes us happy.
