Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

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.
Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.
Broken friendships can be soldered, but never sound.
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough.
Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.
Self-trust is the essence of heroism.
All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.
It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
Those who eat too much or eat too little, who sleep too much or sleep too little, will not succeed in meditation. But those who are temperate in eating and sleeping, work and recreation, will come to the end of sorrow through meditation.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Stay is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
People can cry much easier than they can change.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.
Whatever I am offered in devotion with a pure heart -- a leaf, a flower, fruit, or water -- I accept with joy.
Whatever you do, make it an offering to me -- the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering.
Never trust the man who tells you all his troubles but keeps from you all his joys.
