You are not the same individual you were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago.
You are always growing.

But don’t tell you what to see.
Opportunity doesn’t make appointments.
You have to be ready when it arrives.

When asked what surprised him most about humanity, the Dalai Lama answered:
Man.. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present.
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future.
He lives as if he is never going to die.
And then dies having never really lived.

The world is so much bigger than your mind.
So stop living inside your head.

Cruelty, like every other vice, requires no motive outside of itself.
It only requires opportunity.
( George Eliot )
Some of the most comforting words in the world are ‘me too’.
That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else’s struggle, that you are not alone, and that others have been down the same road.

You will find true happiness in life when you realise it only takes ‘you’ to be happy.
True happiness lies within yourself.
It doesn’t come from others.
The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
If you’ve never lost your mind, then you’ve never followed your heart.
The real things haven’t changed.
It is still best to be honest and truthful.
To make the most of what we have.
To be happy with simple pleasures and have courage when things go wrong.
( Laura Ingalls Wilder )
Never water yourself down just because someone can’t handle you at 100% proof.

It just means it hasn’t happened yet.

Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told.
Obedience is doing what you are told regardless of what is right.
Please and thank you are still magic words.
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
( John Bunyan )
There are many things in life that will catch your eye.
But only a few will catch your heart.
Men are so simple of mind, and so much dominated by their immediate needs, that a deceitful man will always find plenty who are ready to be deceived.
May all living beings be happy.
May they be peaceful.
May they be safe.
May they be free.

If you can’t find one, be one.

Strong people not only stand up for themselves, they stand up for others too.
Instead of planning for a holiday, perhaps you should wonder why you have a life you need to escape from.
