Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi

Robin Sharma

“When you are in touch with the flow of life and feel your heart and mind open, you’ll notice that a certain presence starts to assert itself. This presence changes your physical chemistry, your feelings, and your mind. It is the spirit itself, starting to inform you about yourself, about it, about life. It’s a simple work.”

Swami Chetananda

The purpose of life is to live a life of purpose
Robin Sharma

Swami Vivekananda

“Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in this world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear. The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is fear that is the greatest cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions. It is fear that is the cause of our woes, and it is fearlessness that brings heaven in a moment. And at the root of all fear is lack of clarity of thought which in most cases comes from simply not knowing!

There is only one sin-and that sin is weakness. When I was a boy, I read Milton’s Paradise Lost. The only good man I had any respect for was Satan. The only saint is the soul who never weakens, faces everything, and determines to die game.

The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful”.

Swami Vivekananda

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Wise men put their trust in ideas and not in circumstances.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Aristotle

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”

Aristotle

Phyllis Bottome

“There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties or you alter yourself meeting them.”

Phyllis Bottome

William James

“Most people live, whether physically, intellectually, or morally, in a very restricted circle of their being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into the habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.”

William James

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties”.

Sarah Ban Breathnach

Dr. Arthur Freeman and Rose DeWolf

It doesn’t make any difference whether what you face is something that affects your work, your personal relationships, your sense of security, your appraisal of self-worth, or your appearance–the way you think about your situation largely determines whether you will do anything about it and what you will do.

Dr. Arthur Freeman and Rose DeWolf
