Quotes of the day... 7/9/15

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence…

As far as possible, without surrender, 
be on good terms with all persons…

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be
greater and lesser persons than yourself…

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans…

~excerpted, Max Ehrmann, Desiderata of Happiness

Quotes of the day... 7/7/15

by life's imperfect moments, 
but by your reaction to them. 
And because there is joy in embracing 
- rather than running from – 
the utter absurdity of life.
     ~  Jenny Lawson

The lesson will always repeat itself, 
unless you see yourself 
as the problem--not others.
     ~ Shannon L. Alder

The first thing you have to know is yourself. 
A man who knows himself can 
step outside himself and watch 
his own reactions like an observer.
     ~  Adam Smith
