Everything that irritates us about others
can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

Happiness depends upon ourselves.
- Aristotle

The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people
is that they trigger confusion in us
that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with.

we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes.
- Pema Chodron

Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves.
But deep down below the surface of the average conscience
a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.

but we cannot accept and love ourselves.

We all should choose our friends carefully.
I used to think that no one could know me better than somebody else,
because you're inside yourself, your body, you can't see yourself.
If you think like that, you surround yourself with
other people who are willing to tell you who you are,
which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.
- Jewel

Important ideas can come from unexpected places.
We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,
Socialist, Regressive, Wingnut, Revolutionary, Terrorist.
But it is helpful to remind ourselves to be open
to good ideas - whatever their source.
It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our opportunity is to love ourselves exactly as we are -
with all our joys and sufferings.
To be grateful for everything.
To forgive ourselves for our doubts of our own worthiness -
for we have no need to be anything other than what we are.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The freedom we are looking for
is the freedom to be ourselves,
to express ourselves. But if we look at our lives
we will see that most of the time
we do things just to please others ...
The worst part is that most of us
are not even aware that we are not free.
-Don Miguel Ruiz

We take refuge in pride,
because we are afraid to tell the truth to ourselves.
- Kakuzo Okakura

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves
to recognize how good things really are.

If self-validation were our
most significant societal measure -
we would give trophies to ourselves.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

We cannot possibly let ourselves get frozen into regarding
everyone we do not know as an absolute stranger.

Our opportunity is to Soar our Spirit.
To see Light and Joy in everything.
To spread our wings and fly boldly.

To offer daily Thanksgiving - for ourselves, our family,
our friends, our community, for the whole world.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize
how little we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.

not by mechanical aid, but by
an infinite expectation of the dawn.
- Henry David Thoreau

We ourselves feel that what we are doing
is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less
because of that missing drop.

During his training, a baseball player strives
to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.
It would ingrain bad habits.
The same is true of emotional responses.
If we allow ourselves to continue to have the same angry responses,
we just entrench our anger habit.
But if we strive - through consciousness, visualization, and coaching -
to moderate our anger response,
over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.
You can't magically be free from anger tomorrow,
but you can put yourself on your own training program
that will reduce the frequency and intensity
of your anger response day by day, year by year.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled.
The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over

and our own self-preservation,
we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.
- Joseph Campbell

that the sea will ever rest.
We must learn to sail in high winds.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
- Chief Seattle

We occasionally stumble over the truth
but most of us pick ourselves up and
hurry off as if nothing had happened.
- Winston Churchill

If we don't see a failure as a challenge to modify our approach,
but rather as a problem with ourselves, as a personality defect,
we will immediately feel overwhelmed.
- Anthony Robbins

If we all did the things we are capable of doing,
we would literally astound ourselves.
- Thomas Edison

Sometimes we need the fog to remind ourselves
that all of life is not black and white.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Home is our sanctuary, where we:
relax into being ourselves,
play with our inner child,
paint the walls green and pink,
dig in the dirt,
grow something,
love somebody else,
love ourselves even more,
snuggle with a warm blanket on a Sunday afternoon,
hang "go away" on the door whenever we want,
clean and tidy often... or never,
launch from and return to,
are truly ourselves.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

while others judge us by what we have already done.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A leader is best when people barely know he exists;
when his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
they will say: we did it ourselves.

and the whole of nature and its beauty.
- Albert Einstein

Our business in life is not to get ahead of others,
but to get ahead of ourselves.
- E. Joseph Cossman

The only limits in our life are those we impose on ourselves.
- Bob Proctor

The promises we makes to ourselves are the things
that assure us we have the capacity to keep our promises to others.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.
- The Buddha

The biggest mistake we could ever make in our lives
is to think we work for anybody but ourselves.
- Brian Tracy

The price of success is hard work,
dedication to the job at hand,
and the determination that whether we win or lose,
we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
- Vince Lombardi

It takes discipline and compassion
to awaken the divine in ourselves long enough
to recognize the divine in another.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us;
what we have done for others and the world
remains and is immortal.
- Albert Pike

We hate in others what we most fear in ourselves.
- Anonymous

Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves
come when life seems most challenging.
- Joseph Campbell

We can never obtain peace in the outer world
until we make peace with ourselves.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

When the best leader's work is done the people say,
"We did it ourselves."
- Lao Tzu

In a controversy, the instant we feel anger
we have already ceased striving for the truth,
and have begun striving for ourselves.
- The Buddha

We cause ourselves untold misery whenever we believe
others to be imperfect and try to change them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The trick is in what one emphasizes.
We either make ourselves miserable,
or we make ourselves happy.
The amount of work is the same.

To breathe deeply and honor ourselves.
To pause and contemplate... just because.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
