“You will continue to suffer
if you have an emotional reaction
to everything that is said to you.
True power is sitting back
and observing things with logic.
True power is restraint.
If words control you,
that means everyone else can control you.
Breathe and allow things to pass.”
~ Warren Buffett
“Life isn’t always fair.
Some people are born into better environments.
Some people have better genetics.
Some are in the right place at the right time.
If you’re trying to change your life,
all of this is irrelevant.
All that matters
is that you accept where you are,
figure out where you want to be,
and then do what you can,
today and every day,
to hold your head high
and keep moving forward.”
~ Lori Deschene
“Weak people revenge.
Strong people forgive.
Intelligent people ignore.”
“Have a heart that never hardens
and a temper that never tires,
and a touch that never hurts.”
~ Charles Dickens
“In the household in which I was raised,
the themes were pretty simple.
Work hard. Don’t quit.
Be appreciative, be thankful,
be grateful, be respectful.
Also, never whine, never complain.
And always, for crying out loud,
keep a sense of humor.”
~ Michael Keaton
“You can’t always have a good day.
But you can always face a bad day
with a good attitude.”
“Self control is strength.
Calmness is mastery.
You have to get to a point
where your mood doesn’t shift
based on the insignificant actions
of someone else.
Don’t allow others to control
the direction of your life.
Don’t allow your emotions
to overpower your intelligence.”
