Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.

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

Until you make peace with who you are, you will never be content with what you have.

When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

The past has no power to stop you from being present now. Only your grievance about the past can do that.

Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.

Pleasure can be supported by an illusion; but happiness rests upon truth.

On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a playful, joyous energy behind what you do.

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Prosperity depends more on wanting what you have than having what you want.

Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

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

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

In the longrun we get no more than we have been willing to risk giving.

If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
