The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others......




I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights, and you have yours, but sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, and love belongs to all of us, in all times and in all places..............








Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age............







Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgment and you can see forever...............








When you personalize your life, when you make your life a place where you can be yourself, when you do things the way you want to do them, your life feels like your home. And that is a tremendous source of emotional energy..............








Be yourself. Be true to that, to your heart. Patience. See what happens if you step back instead of bounding forward...............









The way you get to know yourself is by the expression on other people's faces................








The hardest battle you're ever going to fight is the battle to be just you.............








Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement............








It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat..............








He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still...............








Integrity has no need of rules..........








Stand for something or you will fall for anything. Today's mighty oak is yesterday's nut that held its ground......................








For our very humanity is illuminated for us by our fellow beings, each of whom offers the authentic presence of the divine. Over time, the church becomes a vessel which holds us, in moments of tragedy and transformation, in moments of need and vulnerability, in our most urgent questions of meaning. It is the chalice which carries the heritage of our tradition as it is handed from one generation to the next.....








The art of listening needs its highest development in listening to oneself; our most important task is to develop an ear that can really hear what we're saying.............








Don't ask me what I have, but what I am............








The glue that holds all relationships together,  including the relationship between the leader and the led, is trust, and trust is based on integrity..................








A human being is not to be handled as a tool but is to be respected and revered..............








If I could give you one key, and one key only to more abundant life, I would give you a sense of your own worth, an unshakeable sense of your own dignity as one grounded in the source of the cosmic dance, as one who plays a unique part in the unfolding of the story of the world...








First, we are challenged to rise above the narrow confines of our individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity....








Solitude is essentially the discovery and acceptance of our uniqueness................








In reality, humility means nothing other than complete honesty about yourself................








Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher..............







Individuality is the aim of political liberty. By leaving to the citizen as much freedom of action and of being, as comports with order and the rights of others, the institutions render him truly a freeman. He is left to pursue his means of happiness in his own manner..........










Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position..................








Tell me to what you pay attention and I will tell you who you are...............








Every individual matters, every individual has a role to play, every individual makes a difference..............









My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality......







Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks, we will also find our path of authentic service in the world..........









There is no such thing as a 'self-made' man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success...............








I want my inner truth to be the plumb line for the choices I make about my life -- about the work that I do and how I do it, about the relationships I enter into and how I conduct them...............








Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence................








There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe... At every crossing of the threads there is an individual. And every individual is a crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects Not only the light from every other crystal in the net But also every other reflection Throughout the entire universe................








No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning...............








We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing...........








We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing...................








A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes............








Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you............








It is a strange fact that freedom and equality, the two basic ideas of democracy, are to some extent contradictory. Logically considered, freedom and equality are mutually exclusive, just as society and the individual are mutually exclusive...........








We are stronger, gentler, more resilient, and more beautiful than any of us imagine..........








Few is the number who think with their own minds and feel with their own hearts...........








I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being..................







A thoroughly good relationship with ourselves results in being still, which doesn't mean we don't run and jump and dance about. It means there's no compulsiveness. We don't overwork, overeat, oversmoke, overseduce. In short, we begin to stop causing harm.....








Natural rights are those which always appertain to man in right of his existence. Of this kind are all the intellectual rights, or rights of the mind, and also all those rights of acting as an individual for his own comfort and happiness, which are not injurious to the rights of others.........................








You must be the change you wish to see in the world................








It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself, you can't be comfortable with others................








We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity..............








It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence......







Self-sabotage is the smartest thing you can do if you're sabotaging a self that is not really you............









It's a sad day when you find out that it's not accident or time or fortune, but just yourself that kept things from you...........








We are stronger, gentler, more resilient, and more beautiful than any of us imagine..............
