Don't get your knickers in a knot. Nothing is solved and it just makes you walk funny.
If you're going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness' sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em.
He who laughs, lasts.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
Speak when you're angry, and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.
Lawrence J. Peter
When I grow up I want to be a little boy.
Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
Ursula K. Le Guin
I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life - and that is why I succeed.
I always turn to the sports page first. The sports page records people's accomplishments; the front page nothing but man's failure.
Nine-tenths of wisdom is appreciation. Go find somebody's hand and squeeze it, while there's time.
...the Law of Stress-Hardinesss...states that stress is not only to be expected but preferred...we can and should develop an positive, workable approach to stress management...Think of it. The perfect no-stress environment is the grave...When we change our perception we gain control. The stress becomes a challenge, not a threat. When we commit to action, to actually doing something rather than feeling trapped by events, the stress in our life becomes manageable.
...focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation.
Between stimulus and response, one has the freedom to choose.
If you truly feared failure, you'd be very successful.
Life isn't supposed to be an all or nothing battle between misery and bliss. Life isn't supposed to be a battle at all. And when it comes to happiness, well, sometimes life is just okay, sometimes it's comfortable, sometimes wonderful, sometimes boring, sometimes unpleasant. When your day's not perfect, it's not a failure or a terrible loss. It's just another day.
