The little things, I can obey. But the big things – how we think, what we value – those you must choose yourself. You can’t let anyone – or any society – determine those for you.
This is how you start to get respect: by offering something that you have.
We have a sense that we should be like the mythical cowboy… able to take on and conquer anything and live in the world without the need for other people.
It’s not to late to… ask yourself if you really are the person you want to be, and if not, who you do want to be.
The best way to deal with that is to live in a fully conscious, compassionate, loving way. Don’t wait until you’re on your deathbed to recognize that this is the only way to live.
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
Dying is only one thing to be sad over… Living unhappily is something else.
After you have wept and grieved for your physical losses, cherish the functions and the life you have left.
One hundred and ten years from now no one who is here now will be alive.
We’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going.
