The only Zen you find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there.

What is not started today is never finished tomorrow.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Happiness is in itself a kind of gratitude.

Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.

Be thankful when you don’t know something for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

A man is not old until regrets take the place of his dreams.

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.

Friendship isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things.

Commitment in the face of conflict produces character.

You can do what’s reasonable or you can decide what’s possible.

If you lose today, win tomorrow. In this never-ending spirit of challenge is the heart of a victor.

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.

An obstacle may be either a stepping stone or a stumbling block.

Being right is highly overrated. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.
