The very greatest things -- great thoughts, discoveries, inventions -- have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty.

Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
When it is not necessary to change, it is necessary not to change.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy -- unless you let him.
If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.
Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretence of keeping it alive.
Love may be blind but jealousy has 20-20 vision.
Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.
Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.
Love is what is left in a relationship after all the selfishness is taken out.
A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.
Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
If you can't change your fate, change your attitude.
People who wait for changes to occur on the outside before they commit to making changes on the inside will never make any changes at all.
Love and you shall be loved. All love is mathematically just, as much as the two sides of an algebraic equation.
That is the true season of love; when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved as much before, and that no one will ever love in the same way again.
I present myself to you in a form suitable to the relationship I wish to achieve with you.
