To Think About

“What’s the difference between a positive day and a negative one?”  “Your attitude!”

“I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated, and helping those in need.  To me, those are traditional values.”  – Ellen Degeneres

  • This is my “depressed stance.”  When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.  The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better.  If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.  ~Charlie Brown
  • Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable, than risk being happy.  ~Robert Anthony
  • It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years — we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.

  • We can travel a long way and do many things, but our deepest happiness is not born from accumulating new experiences. it is born from letting go of what is unnecessary, and knowing ourselves to be always at home.

    – Sharon Salzberg

  • “The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was and the present worse than it is.”
  • “It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.”

    – Agnes Repplier

  • “cherish the moments that make each day special.”

  • “It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.”

    – Agnes Repplier

“Just because something seems to make other people happy doesn’t mean that it really does. People are very good at pretending they’re happy, especially when they’ve invested so much into the things that are supposed to make them happy; it’s hard to admit that you’ve been placing all your eggs in the wrong basket.”
