9 Relationship Quotes That Will Make You Feel Better About Commitment.

9 Relationship Quotes That Will Make You Feel Better About Commitment.

The following list of relationship quotes were all derived from Mark Manson’s book The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck.  With a title like that, I’m sure you’ve already gathered this much but just to set the tone for the quotes you’re about to read, Mark is the type of author who cuts right to the chase and doesn’t sweet-talk any of the advice he gives.  There’s no positive mantras, affirmations, or feel-good stories—in fact, it’s a refreshing dose of just the opposite.

In his own words he says, “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.”  And while it may sound like a grim and negative perspective on life, his advice is actually quite practical and direct and can help you turn your life around in less time than a lot of what he would consider to be the sugar-coated product(s) available on the market today.

15 Quotes on Changing the World – And Why You Already ARE Making A Difference.

15 Quotes on Changing the World - And Why You Already ARE Making A Difference.
What you do makes a difference.  Every action, every choice, every day.

Don’t get it twisted in thinking that you’re just a small fish in a large ocean and that it doesn’t matter what you do – that the world will always be the same.

False.  Wrong.  Lazy thinking.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, motivated individuals can change the world – as it is the only thing that ever has!

Real change has and always will start with an individual, an individual who dares dream of a different world, influences people to join him on the quest to get there, and takes action accordingly.

Easier said than done – but it doesn’t have to be grandiose and insurmountable.  It simply has to start with the intention of changing one person.

As the Dalai Lama reminds us, “The suffering of one person or one nation is the suffering of humanity; The happiness of one person or nation is the happiness of humanity.” Continue reading

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

 

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

 

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

 

I shall be telling this with a sign

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

 

~ Robert Frost

“I know people who have been stuck in doubt their entire lifetime.  Each of these unfortunate individuals – some of them my very own friends and family – came at some point to a crossroads.  They came to this crossroads and found themselves rooted there, with one foot firmly planted on each side of the intersection.  Alas, they never moved off the dime.  They procrastinated.  Dithered.  Finally, they put a folding chair smack in the center of that crossroads and lived there for the rest of their lives.  After a while, they forgot entirely that there even was a crossroads – forgot that there was a choice.” ~ Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life
