I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby.

When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.

Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.

Don’t promise when you are happy, don’t reply when you are angry, and don’t decide when you are sad.

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

Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take the action. Take the action and your feelings will change.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.

Action is the antidote to despair.

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keep out the joy.

The secret of joy is the mastery of pain.

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

Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.

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

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.

Anger always comes from frustrated expectations.
