“Walking around a slum in a third world country quickly puts into perspective what really matters in life. It grounds you in a way that you can’t experience without getting out of your bubble at home.” ~ Katherine Schwarzenegger
“Remember you will die. Maybe even today. Don’t forget that. Don’t forget to be thankful for your health. For the ability to walk. For the time you get to spend with the person you love. For your siblings. For whatever it is that you have today. It’s not yours, it can be stolen away at any moment. So while you have it on loan, cherish it.” ~ Nick Crocker, Medium
“When you suffer, you can look deeply at your situation and find the many blessings that are already surrounding you. It is wonderful to sit with a pen and paper and write down all the conditions for happiness that are already there, already available to you right in this moment.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Savor
“How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvelous patterns of its environment – from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies – how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?” ~ Alan Watts, The Book
“Nothing satisfies an individual incapable of enjoyment.” ~ Alan Watts, The Book
“Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” ~ Proverb
“Inner peace begins when we stop saying of things, ‘I have lost it’ and instead say, ‘It has been returned to where it came from.’ Why should it be any concern of yours who gives your things back to the world that gave them to you? The important thing is to take great care with what you have while the world lets you have it.” ~ Epictetus, The Art of Living
“We human beings don’t realize how great God is. He has given us an extraordinary brain and a sensitive loving heart. He has blessed us with two lips to talk and express our feelings, two eyes which see a world of colors and beauty, two feet which walk on the road of life, two hands to work for us, a nose which smells the beauty of fragrance, and two ears to hear the words of love. As I found with my ear, no one knows how much power they have in their each and every organ until they lose one.” ~ Malala Yousafzai, I Am Malala
“The english word thanks comes from the same root word as think. Maybe if leaders were more ‘think-ful’ about the contribution of others, they would be more ‘thankful’ to them.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
