We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. what a man thinks of himself, that it is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.”
Henry David Thoreau
Happiness has to do with your mindset, not with outside circumstance.
If you can’t control your mind, everything and everyone else will.
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.
It is much more valuable to look for the strength in others. You can gain nothing by criticizing their imperfections.
Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
