More short quotes and poems for reflection:
"I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy.
From the very core of our being, we desire contentment.
In my own limited experience I have found that
the more we care for the happiness of others,
the greater is our own sense of well-being.
Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others
automatically puts the mind at ease.
It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities
we may have and gives us the strength to cope with
any obstacles we encounter.
It is the principal source of success in life.
Since we are not solely material creatures,
it is a mistake to place all our hopes for
happiness on external development alone.
The key is to develop inner peace."
"Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Mental tensions, frustrations, insecurity, aimlessness are among the most damaging stressors, and psychosomatic studies have shown how often they cause migraine headache, peptic ulcers, heart attacks, hypertension, mental disease, suicide, or just hopeless unhappiness."
"There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them."
"Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Listen hard. Practice wellness.
Play with abandon. Laugh.
Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn.
Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is."
Mary Anne Radmacher
"You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith."
Mary Manin Morrissey
"One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important."
"Worry bankrupts the spirit. "
"It is not hte mountains we conquer but ourselves."
Sir Edmund Hillary
"Fear is faith that it won't work out.
Sister Mary Tricky
"Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.
"We can easily manage if we will only take, each day, the burden appointed to it. But the load will be too heavy for us if we carry yesterday's burden over again today, and then add the burden of the morrow before we are required to bear it."
"It is not the cares of today, but the cares of tomorrow, that weigh a man down.
"Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action."
"Great acts are made up of small deeds."
"God moves mountains, but sometimes a shovel-full at a time."
