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

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

I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.

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

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

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.

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

Letting go of the past means that you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.

You only lose what you cling to.

We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.

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

Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.

Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.

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.
