I and this mystery, here we stand.
Walt Whitman

When we can’t forgive someone for an offense, and justify being right about it, we are only using them to hurt ourselves. It’s a trap, a maze of suffering without end.

Being right and getting all worked up about it—our national pastime—only hurts us.

To heal any hurt caused by the perception that you’ve been abandoned, betrayed, disappointed, misunderstood, or unfairly treated takes a double dose of the sweetest medicine of all: forgiveness.

Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.
Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.
M. Scott Peck 
Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you. It is meant to, and it couldn’t do it better. Every seed destroys its container or else there would be no fruition.
Florida Scott-Maxwell
We first make our habits, then our habits make us.
Charles C. Noble
The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.
Albert Einstein
