The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low.

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.

When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open.  And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.

Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.

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

If pleasures are greatest in anticipation, just remember that this is also true of troubles.

The secret of joy is the mastery of pain.

Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.

Breakdowns can create breakthroughs. Things fall apart so things can fall together.

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

In chaos, there is fertility.

Feelings are real and legitimate.

The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.

Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it’s dark.

Wisdom is nothing more than healed pain.

Suffering is not caused by pain but by resisting pain.

Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.

Always concentrate on how far you’ve come, rather than how far you have left to go.

If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.

If you learn from a loss you have not lost.
