“Pain is not a punishment. And pleasure is not a reward. You could argue that failure is not punishment and… Success is not reward. They’re just failure and success. You can choose how you respond.” ~ Sarah Lewis, The Rise

“Be determined to be positive. Understand that the greater part of your misery or unhappiness is determined not by your circumstances, but by your attitude. So smile at those who often try to begrudge or hurt you, show them what’s missing in their life and what they can’t take away from you.” ~ Marc Chernoff, Blog
“The Buddha said, ‘Nothing can survive without food.’ This is a very simple and very deep truth. Love and hate are both living phenomena. If we do not nourish our love, it will die and may turn into hate. If we want love to last, we have to nurture it and give it food every day. Hate is the same; if we don’t feed it, it cannot survive.” ~ Thich Nhat Hahn, Savor
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” ~ Maya Angelou
One of my initial goals with starting MoveMe Quotes was to create a platform that would put out daily reminders of goodness, peace, and motivation into the world – With the idea of spreading more good vibes and positively influencing more people. I have been doing this since 2010 and what I have slowly come to realize is that the person I have been influencing the most… is me.
