Quotes to Ponder

“We, as human beings, have this amazing capacity to be reborn at breakfast.” – Jack Kornfield

“True peace is something we can discover at the very heart of our anxiety. Peace does not arise from a total control over who we are, but instead from the transformation of one’s reality.” – Fabrice Midal, The French Art of Not Giving a Sh*t

“Your circumstances reveal you to yourself.” – James Allen

“All the greatest things we know have come to us from neurotics. Never will the world be conscious of how much it owes to them, nor above all of what they have suffered in order to bestow their gifts on it. We enjoy fine music, beautiful pictures, a thousand exquisite things, but we do not know what they have cost those who wrought them in sleeplessness, tears, spasmodic laughter, rashes, asthma, epilepsy.” – Marcel Proust

“The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war.” – Norman Schwarzkopf
