A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.

The pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow.

Do not judge by appearances; a rich heart may be under a poor coat.

Sometimes you have to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.

Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be.

We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.

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

The best path to happiness is learning to change as rapidly as life does.

Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.

Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.

Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had.

We find comfort among those who agree with us—growth among those who don’t.

As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.

Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.

The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low.
