“Even in the midst of the raging storm, pause long enough to remind yourself that it’s all a miracle. And when the pain is unbearable and you think you can no longer go on, remember this: On that day in the future when you’re gasping for your final breath, you will gladly take back even your worst day, to live over again…to watch the sunrise, to smell the flowers, to hear your child’s laughter, to hold the ones you love just one more time. With that in mind, laugh in the face of the storm. Find the courage that lies deep within. Let adversity fuel your determination. Nobody said it would be easy. You only fail if you give up….so don’t.” – JSB

“Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky, because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking to what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…
If you chase experiences and not things, those experiences will change you, the wisdom gained will be internalized, and that will be your greatest reward.
