People sort themselves into groups
of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.

The church is always trying to get other people to reform;
it might not be a bad idea to reform itself a little,
by way of example.
- Mark Twain

Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.
We leave our most profoundly positive impact
on those around us by the nature of our lives
and the example we set -
not by how busy we are,
or how important we believe we are.
Setting an example of being loving, relaxed and joyful,
regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.
I want my tombstone to read, "Inspired others,"
rather than, "Never missed a day at the office."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

People can be more forgiving than you can imagine.
But you have to forgive yourself.
Let go of what's bitter and move on.

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will be as one.
- John Lennon

What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?
- Max Lucado

but asking to be changed in ways you can't imagine.

The most important promises are the ones you make to yourself.
Pay Attention.
Appreciate. Listen. Imagine.

If you can dream it, you can become it.
- William Arthur Ward

Imagine...
- John Lennon

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.
You know, one day you look at the person
and you see something more than you did the night before.
Like a switch has been flicked somewhere.
And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
- Dana Scully

Imagine ... Imagine no religion.
- John Lennon

Happiness is a figment of the imagination.
Imagine happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

God is not what you imagine
or what you think you understand.
If you understand you have failed.
- Saint Augustine

All successful people men and women are big dreamers.
They imagine what their future could be,
ideal in every respect,
and then they work every day toward
their distant vision,
that goal or purpose.

A person is smart. People are dumb,
panicky dangerous animals and you know it.
Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew
the Earth was the center of the universe.
Five hundred years ago,
everybody knew the Earth was flat,
and fifteen minutes ago,
you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
- the movie Men in Black

the objects of his creation
and is but a reflection of human frailty.

is to imagine yourself without one.

higher than the heart can imagine.

Today's acorns grow into the oak trees of thirty years hence.
But what acorns are we sowing today?
Imagine what an acorn-sized bit of prejudice or hatred would grow into.
Imagine what an acorn-sized bit of pollution can become.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

like the contact of two chemical substances:
if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

you, too, can become great.

who expect a great deal of each other but never ask it.
- Anonymous

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people stay for awhile,
and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.
- Flavia Weedn

The easiest kind of friendship for me
is with ten thousand people.
The hardest is with one.
- Joan Baez

You can make more friends in two months
by becoming interested in other people
than you can in two years by trying
to get other people interested in you.

but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you
when the limo breaks down.

on those few people who can appreciate you for what you are.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are
and then wait to hear the answer.
- Anonymous

People will, in a great degree,
and not without reason,
form their opinion of you upon
that which they have of your friends;

and I will tell you who you are.

Other people do not have to change
for us to experience peace of mind.
