"You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway."
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour."
"Fear, uncertainty, and discomfort are your compasses toward growth."
"Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself."
Walter Alderson
International Day of the Book - William Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved."
Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare (via oldfilmsflicker)
"The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment."
"Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination."
"Life is about trusting your feelings and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories, learning from the past, and realizing people change."
Atul Purohit
"Don’t call it uncertainty—call it wonder. Don’t call it insecurity—call it freedom."
"Control is very easy because control needs only a cultivation of habits. You cultivate habits, then those habits possess you and you need not worry. Then you go on with your habits, they become mechanical and you live a robot life. You may look like a Buddha but you will not be. You will be just a dead stone statue."
