There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self. So you have to begin there, not outside, not on other people. That comes afterward, when you’ve worked on your own corner.
Self-acceptance comes from meeting life’s challenges vigorously. Don’t numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
Don’t let one cloud obliterate the whole sky.
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
Charles R. Swindoll
We can gradually grow into any condition we desire, provided we first make ourselves in habitual mental attitude the person who corresponds to those conditions.
He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.
