What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind.

Gautama Buddha

The whole game of inner peace basically comes down to this:

It's not external events that make us happy or unhappy. It's the story we tell ourselves about what those events mean.

Mahatma Gandhi

People don't decide their future.

They decide their habits, and their habits decide their future.
F.M. Alexander

Everything you do is based on the choices you make.

It's not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period.

You become that which you think you are. Or, it is not that you become it, but that the idea gets very deeply rooted - and that's what all conditioning is.


Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.

Tony Robbins

Why struggle to open a door between us when the whole wall is an illusion?


I change my thoughts, I change my world.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world

Gautama Buddha

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves

Gautama Buddha

It's easy to spot...

...a yellow car when you are always thinking of a yellow car, opportunity when you are always thinking of opportunity, or reasons to be mad when you are always thinking of being mad.
You become what you constantly think about. Watch yourself.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Zig Ziglar

This manure in the photo may actually be the only thing that's really for free...and yet it will still cost you something. Nothing is without cost.

A wise person from the Scrapple state

The more rules you have about how people have to be, how life has to be for you to be happy...the less happy you're going to be.

Tony Robbins

Your job is to control yourself. Your job is to discipline yourself. Your job is to deal with everything in life with affection, love and kindness.

Harbhajan Singh Yogi

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.

If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
Gautama Buddah

Perfect love is rare indeed...

...for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain.
Yogi Bhajan

That is the simple secret of happiness.

Whatever you are doing, don't let past move your mind; don't let future disturb you. Because the past is no more, and the future is not yet. To live in the memories, to live in the imagination, is to live in the non-existential. And when you are living in the non-existential, you are missing that which is existential. Naturally you will be miserable, because you will miss your whole life.

Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say:

“Wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A diploma, a job, a house, the payment of a debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.

Elbert Hubbard

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love.

This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

If you quit now...

...you'll end up right back where you first began. And when you first began you were desperate to be where you are right now. Keep going.

At some point there is no excuse

Either you want to do everything it takes to make it happen, or you don't!

If you fail...Congratulations. Most people don't even try.

Elon Musk

There are many undesireable things you could be:

Poor, uneducated, homely, unaccomplished, snobby, rude, selfish, ignorant, lazy, or apathetic. BUT YOU CANNOT EVER, NEVER, AND I MEAN EVER... be stinky. Not even animals will tolerate that.
Jonathan Asbell

Quem muito se abaixa...o cú aparece.

Barbara Sarmento

When you buy from a small business...

...you're not helping a corporation control the price and availability of what you buy. You're providing an opportunity for an independent owner to compete and service you better, live a life on his/her terms, and provide a life for their family.
