Wisdom

 

“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” — William S. Burroughs

“The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.” — Neale Donald Walsch

“Belonging starts with self-acceptance … Believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic.” — Brene Brown

“The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.” — Walt Disney

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” — Audrey Hepburn

“You’re worried about how you’re going to feel at the end of your life? What about right now? Live. Right this minute. That’s where the joy’s at.” — Abigail Thomas

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself — no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are — completely; the good and the bad — and make changes as you see fit, not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” — Stacey Charter

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” — Martin Luther King Jr.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” — George Bernard Shaw
