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

Never apologize for showing feelings. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.

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

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.

You change for two reasons: Either you learn enough that you want to, or you’ve been hurt enough that you have to.

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

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.

Whatever the past has been, you have a spotless future.

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

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

You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.

How we remember, what we remember and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.

You only lose what you cling to.

The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.

No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.

Hope is the feeling that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.
