…The Less You Let Things Upset You

“The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.” ―Stephanie Perkins


Maybe That Leader Is You

“The lie that you can’t make money doing what you love is just a projection of your self-accepted unworthiness. We are all worthy of abundance. The great Earth is abundant, and we are its stewards; endless wealth is ours. We have the wealth of the universe; it’s all accessible, but you have to claim the abundance. You don’t have to be poor to be deeply spiritual, and in fact spirituality can bring every type of wealth there is to be had. What the world needs more than anything is more spiritual millionaires and spiritual billionaires; the world needs conscious leadership! Maybe that leader is you.” —Bryant McGill

When You’re Sick…

“When you’re sick, who does the shopping or takes you to the doctor? Who do you talk to when you are upset?” In other words, who provides you with emotional and practical support? Some patients gave us surprising answers: ‘My dog’ or ‘My therapist’ – or ‘nobody.’” ―Bessel A. van der Kolk


A Particular Missing Part

“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time—the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes—when there’s a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that she’s gone, forever—there comes another day, and another specifically missing part.” ―John Irving


I Never…

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” –Frida Kahlo



“In your entire life, you can probably count your true friends on one hand. Maybe even on one finger. Those are the friends you need to cherish, and I wouldn’t trade one of them for a hundred of the other kind. I’d rather be completely alone than with a bunch of people who aren’t real. People who are just passing time.” ―Sarah Ockler


We Live In A Culture

“We live in a culture that has, for centuries now, cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can almost be as stupid as a cabbage as long as you doubt.” ―Dallas Willard
