Helpful Quotations for Emotional Healing and Personal Growth
Read and ponder...
You did what you knew how to do, and when you knew better, you did better. Maya Angelou
Our very life depends on everything’s recurring 'til we answer from within. Robert Frost
Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. Virginia Satir
We do not receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey through the wilderness, which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world. Marcel Proust
The most powerful thing you can do to change the world is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, people, and reality to something more positive...and begin to act accordingly. Shakti Gawain
Our life is what our thoughts make of it. Marcus Aurelius
Life does not consist mainly - or even largely - of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever blowing through one's mind. Mark Twain
For one who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, the mind will remain the greatest enemy. The Bhagavad-Gita
The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. William James
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. C. G. Jung
We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full. Marcel Proust
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
Neurosis is always a substitute for legitimate suffering. C. G. Jung
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Reinhold Niebuhr
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. Albert Camus
My favorite poet was Aeschylus. He once wrote: "Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God." Robert Kennedy, spoken on 4/4/68 to a black audience informing them that Martin Luther King had just been assassinated by a white man.
