If you’re going through hell, keep going.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
--George Bernard Shaw
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man.
Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared for things we are not equipped to handle now. When we face our challenges with faith, prepared to learn, willing to make changes, and if necessary, to let go, we are demanding our power be turned on.
We can throw stones, complain about them, stumble on them, climb over them, or build with them.
--William Arthur Ward
Always keep that happy attitude. Pretend that you are holding a beautiful fragrant bouquet.
Life is a bridge. Cross over it, but build no house on it
It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.
Life is an art we are required to practice without preparation, a score that we play at sight even before we have mastered our instruments
Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves–or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.
If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever
Do for this life as if you live forever, do for the afterlife as if you will die tomorrow
--Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib
There has been much tragedy in my life; at least half of it actually happened.
The human spirit needs to accomplish, to achieve, to triumph to be happy.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
--George Washington Carver
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
The three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
To the woman who complained that riches hadn’t made her happy, the Master said “You speak as if luxury and comfort were ingredients of happiness; whereas all you need to be really happy, my dear, is something to be enthusiastic about.
--Anthony de Mello
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.
The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have.
It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.
We need not only a purpose in life to give meaning to our existence but also something to give meaning to our suffering
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not our circumstances.
We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us
Without that innate sense of human worth, a man cannot long endure adversity, nor can he long enjoy prosperity.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?
--Charles M Schulz
Everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual.
Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room, every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.
There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is.
Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
