Prefer a loss to a dishonest gain; the one brings pain at the moment, the other for all time.

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.

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

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than hurt yourself trying to put it back together.

Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.

Before someone’s tomorrow has been taken away, cherish those you love, appreciate them today.

If you learn from a loss you have not lost.

Life is a process of becoming. A combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

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

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

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

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

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

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

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.

Whenever something negative happens to you, there is a deep lesson concealed within it.

You only lose what you cling to.
