To be content means that you realize you contain what you seek.

Your Own Ways

You can allow yourself to be carried away with everything around you, or you can create your own ways to nurture what you want to nurture inside of you.

— Danai Gurira

Out there

If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem.

— Stephen Covey

The Glue of Life

Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.

— Stephen Covey

Become Better

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.

— Paulo Coelho



Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.

–Alexander Graham Bell

Keep Moving Forward

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.


— Martin Luther King Jr.

What’s Past is Past

What’s past is past, nothing can change that. But the future can be different if we choose to make it so. We have to cultivate a vision of a happier, more peaceful future and make the effort now to bring it about. There is no time for complacency, hope lies in the action we take.

— Dalai Lama

You Are Your Own Master

Karma means action and action motivated by compassion is good. To complain that what happens to you is just the result of your karma is lazy. Instead, confidently recalling the advice that, “You are your own master,” you can change what happens by taking action.

— Dalai Lama

Inner Values

Developing inner values is much like physical exercise. The more we train our abilities, the stronger they become. The difference is that, unlike the body, when it comes to training the mind, there is no limit to how far we can go.

Dalai Lama
