The secret of joy is the mastery of pain.

Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.

Pain is not a sign of weakness, but bearing it alone is a choice to grow weak.

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.

A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.

Our lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.

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

As long as you make an identity for yourself out of pain, you cannot be free of it.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow. It only saps today of its joy.
