“Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years.  No one would sleep that night, of course.  The world would create new religions overnight.  We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night and we watch television.”   (Paul Hawkens)

“Most of the pain you’re dealing with are really just thoughts … ever think of that?”   (Buddhist Bookcamp)



“That’s the thing about ‘what ifs’; they don’t matter.  They don’t change anything.  All they do is make it unable for you to heal.”   (Lindy Zart)



“If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.”   (Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior)



“Eat like you love yourself.

Move like you love yourself.

Speak like you love yourself.

Act like you love yourself.”   (thehealthblr)
