There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept responsibility for changing them.

You can’t be envious and happy at the same time.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

Letting go isn’t the end of the world; it’s the beginning of a new life.

We need not think alike to love alike.

Our obligation is to give meaning to life, and in doing so to overcome the passive, indifferent life.

A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and realize that prisoner was you.

When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.

Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries.

He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.

The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.

Growth begins when we begin to accept our weaknesses.

You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you.

No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.
