All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.

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

It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.

Some people think it’s holding on that makes one strong—sometimes it’s letting go.

A hard fall means a high bounce…if you’re made of the right material.

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

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.

Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.

Problems are the price of progress.

Life will bring you pain all by itself. Your responsibility is to create joy.

Impossibilities are merely things which we have not yet learned.

You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.

Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.

To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals–this alone is worth the struggle.

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept responsibility for changing them.
