Remember, happiness and negativity are largely self-fulfilling prophecies. We see whatever we choose to project on the world around us, and that reflects back to us like a huge movie screen. We are, then, at once the projectionist, the actor, and the audience in this movie called Life.

On Success & Failure - If you haven't failed, you haven't tried hard enough. Success in obtaining anything worth any value requires a long chain of failures. Otherwise everyone would have it.

Every successive failure leads us one step closer to success. Thank God for our failures, those painful walls we hit that define the seemingly invisible boundaries of our lives, ever redirecting us, like guiding lights, down the winning paths to all our victories.

When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.

QUOTES ABOUT THE IMPOSSIBLE*: ►Every record ever broken and every formerly impossible journey began with one person setting fear of failure aside, taking one step forward and acting on his dream. ►Every great & impossible feat began with at least one person taking one step forward. Hear impossible feat, then, as the ultimate oxymoron. ►Half of overcoming or achieving anything impossible is simply overcoming the psychological hurdle of inaction, setting aside, even temporarily, fear of failure, and taking just one step forward. ►Throughout history, every time a seemingly impossible task was achieved, and another “impossible” task was crossed off the list, someone had a vision or a passion, combined with hard work. ►Who defines what is impossible? No one. Impossible is simply the set of things that we have not YET achieved *Quotations by Bradley Mittman MD

It's ok to understand other people. But it's not enough. Advertence is necessary too. Because it's easy to understand abstract person if you're not a victim but outside observer. Imagine you say to friend who needs your help: «I understand the man who stole from you because he was starved». Or that: «I understand that scumbag who raped you because his wife ran out on him and he wanted to blow off steam». Only most hard-hearted person can say that.

Remember, it's not so much the PERSON that you miss. It's the FEELINGS that you associated with being with them that you miss. Once you identify those feelings and realize how UNIVERSAL feelings really are, your healing will be faster, as you allow yourself to experience those same feelings with the target of your choice.
