 “We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after ajourney through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world.

They represent a struggle and a victory.” – Proust“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens canchange the world.

So youmust make friends with yourself. Enjoy yourself. Take comfort inyourself. Smile at yourself. You are developing confidence.” - Robert Aitken"The practice of Zen is forgetting the self in the act of uniting withsomething." - Yamada Roshi“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but ahabit.” - Aristotle“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of  value.” - Albert Einstein“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Gandhi.“One must know that sorrow, being the means of convincing one of theneed of the religious life, is a guru. - Dvagpo-Lharje (Great GuruGampopa)
“By quitting one's own country and dwelling in foreign lands one shouldacquire practical knowledge of non-attachment.” - Dvagpo-Lharje (GreatGuru Gampopa)“Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it canchange someone else’s life forever.” - Margaret Cho"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill"The healthiest of all human emotions is gratitude." – Zig ZiglarDon’t confuse activity with accomplishment – Zig Ziglar (paraphrase)"Is your fear of failure greater than your desire to succeed? - Zig Ziglar,“I'll go to the hills when my heart is lonely I know I will hear what I've heard before” - Oscar Hammerstein II andRichard Rodgers"Time is the wisest counselor of all." - Pericles"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - EleanorRoosevelt“It is preoccupation with possession, more than anything else, thatprevents men from living freely and nobly.” - Bertrand Russell“Everything in nature invites us constantly to be what we are. We areoften like rivers: careless and forceful, timid and dangerous, lucid andmuddied, eddying, gleaming, still....Thoreau wrote: "A man's life shouldbe as fresh as a river. It should be the same channel but a new waterevery instant." '- Gretel Ehrlich
