When what we are is what we want to be, that's happiness.

The tighter you squeeze, the less you have.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
Destiny has two ways of crushing us -- by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant.
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.
Understanding brings control.
If you do not understand a man you cannot crush him. And if you do understand him, very probably you will not.
I started out with nothing. I still have most of it.
To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts expressed -- That can make life a garden.
I still understand a few words in life, but I no longer think they make a sentence.
Where I am not understood, it shall be concluded that something very useful and profound is couched underneath.
Everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving
Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
All great achievements require time.
Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.
We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
The end is never as satisfying as the journey. To have achieved everything but to have done so without integrity and excitement is to have achieved nothing.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn't permanent.
To persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man.
If you wish to be a leader you will be frustrated, for very few people wish to be led. If you aim to be a servant you will never be frustrated.
Nothing is a greater impediment to being on good terms with others than being ill at ease with yourself.
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
Depression is rage spread thin.
Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.
We are threatened with suffering from three directions: from our own body, which is doomed to decay and dissolution and which cannot even do without pain and anxiety as warning signals; from the external world, which may rage against us with overwhelming and merciless forces of destruction; and finally from our relations to other men. The suffering which comes from this last source is perhaps more painful than any other.
You can hold yourself back from the sufferings of the world, that is something you are free to do and it accords with your nature, but perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could avoid.
Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise.
This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.

Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.
Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.
Success is getting and achieving what you want. Happiness is wanting and being content with what you get.
I attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.
Any man who selects a goal in life which can be fully achieved has already defined his own limitations.
A constant struggle, a ceaseless battle to bring success from inhospitable surroundings, is the price of all great achievements.
A plan is a list of actions arranged in whatever sequence is thought likely to achieve an objective.
People have been known to achieve more as a result of working with others than against them.
If you want to achieve a high goal, you're going to have to take some chances.
Goodness is achieved not in a vacuum, but in the company of other men, attended by love.
You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.
I present myself to you in a form suitable to the relationship I wish to achieve with you.
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner.
At the beginning of every act of faith, there is often a seed of fear. For great acts of faith are seldom born out of calm calculation.
Friendship is to have the latchkey of another's mind.
One of the most difficult things everyone has to learn is that for your entire life you must keep fighting and adjusting if you hope to survive. No matter who you are or what your position is you must keep fighting for whatever it is you desire to achieve.

Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be one.
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
Every minute starts an hour and every minute is a new opportunity. Each time the clock ticks you have a chance to start over, to say, do, think, or feel something in such a way that you and the world are better for it.
When you feel that you have reached the end and that you cannot go one step further, when life seems to be drained of all purpose: What a wonderful opportunity o start all over again, to turn over a new page.
Pressure is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it's because you've started to think of failure.
The undertaking of a new action brings new strength.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
Last, but by no means least, courage-moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world ;is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your ;conscience on the other.

There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
There have been as great souls unknown to fame as any of the most famous.
Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.
I am willing to put myself through anything; temporary pain or discomfort means nothing to me as long as I can see that the experience will take me to a new level. I am interested in the unknown, and the only path to the unknown is through breaking barriers, an often-painful process.
Everyone who achieves success in a great venture, solves each problem as they came to it. They helped themselves. And they were helped through powers known and unknown to them at the time they set out on their voyage. They keep going regardless of the obstacles they met.
The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.
If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance, sweeps away all obstacles.
For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way.

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
