Have respect for yourself, and patience and compassion. With these, you can handle anything.
Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn’t have the power to say yes.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
If you are never scared, embarrassed, or hurt, it means you never take chances.
Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.
The past has no power to stop you from being present now. Only your grievance about the past can do that.
If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.
Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.
Some people think it’s holding on that makes one strong—sometimes it’s letting go.
A hard fall means a high bounce…if you’re made of the right material.
It isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer; it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens.
We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.
When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
