Perhaps you are overvaluing what you don’t have and undervaluing what you do.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

So, attend carefully to your posture. Quit drooping and hunching around. Speak your mind. Put your desires forward, as if you had a right to them — at least the same right as others. Walk tall and gaze forthrightly ahead. Dare to be dangerous. Encourage the serotonin to flow plentifully through neural pathways desperate for its calming influence.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

The successful among us delay gratification. The successful among us bargain with the future.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

The better ambitions have to do with the development of character and ability, rather than status and power. Status you can lose. You carry character with you wherever you go, and it allows you to prevail against adversity.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

And if you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

When you have something to say, silence is a lie.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

There’s some real utility in gratitude.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

You can only find out what you actually believe (rather than what you think you believe) by watching how you act. You simply don’t know what you believe, before that. You are too complex to understand yourself.

Jordan Peterson  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Compassionate people ask for what they need. They say no when they need to, and when they say yes, they mean it. They’re compassionate because their boundaries keep them out of resentment.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

What we know matters but who we are matters more.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

There will be times when standing alone feels too hard, too scary, and we’ll doubt our ability to make our way through the uncertainty.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

We are born makers. We move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

No one belongs here more than you.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

We are wired for connection. But the key is that, in any given moment of it, it has to be real.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Every story matters...We are all worthy of telling our stories and having them heard. We all need to be seen and honored in the same way that we all need to breathe.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Conflict transformation rather than...conflict resolution. To me, the latter suggests going back to a previous state of affairs, and has a connotation that there may be a winner or a loser. [Conflict transformation has] the opportunity to create something new.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Who we are and how we engage with the world are much stronger predictors of how our children will do than what we know about parenting.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

When we feel good about the choices we’re making and when we’re engaging with the world from a place of worthiness rather than scarcity, we feel no need to judge and attack.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Numb the dark and you numb the light.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Vulnerability is not weakness, and the uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure we face every day are not optional. Our only choice is a question of engagement. Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of our fear and disconnection.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

I define vulnerability as uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. With that definition in mind, let’s think about love. Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow — that’s vulnerability.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

We live in a world where most people still subscribe to the belief that shame is a good tool for keeping people in line. Not only is this wrong, but it’s dangerous. Shame is highly correlated with addiction, violence, aggression, depression, eating disorders, and bullying.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

The real questions for parents should be: ‘Are you engaged? Are you paying attention?’ If so, plan to make lots of mistakes and bad decisions. Imperfect parenting moments turn into gifts as our children watch us try to figure out what went wrong and how we can do better next time. The mandate is not to be perfect and raise happy children. Perfection doesn’t exist, and I’ve found what makes children happy doesn’t always prepare them to be courageous, engaged adults.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

Raising children who are hopeful and who have the courage to be vulnerable means stepping back and letting them experience disappointment, deal with conflict, learn how to assert themselves, and have the opportunity to fail. If we’re always following our children into the arena, hushing the critics, and assuring their victory, they’ll never learn that they have the ability to dare greatly on their own.

Brene Brown  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own. It talks to me sometimes. I feel myself alive in it. It talks. And I can hear it.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

How will I teach this mind what it is to have a soul? How will I teach this mind to understand pain? How will I teach it to want to take on another person’s suffering?

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

Forgive me…for everything…I have done…A - a wiser father…may have done differently. I am not…wise.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

The Talmud says that a person should do two things for himself. One is to acquire a teacher. Do you remember the other?’ ‘Choose a friend.’ I said.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

When a person comes to talk to you, you should be patient and listen. Especially if he has hurt you in any way.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

I stood in that room for a long time, watching the sunlight and listening to the sounds on the street outside. I stood there, tasting the room and the sunlight and the sounds, and thinking of the long hospital ward. . . Somehow everything had changed. I had spent five days in a hospital and the world around seemed sharpened now and pulsing with life

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

[My father] taught me with silence. . .to look into myself, to find my own strength, to walk around inside myself in company with my soul. . . . One learns of the pain of others by suffering one’s own pain … by turning inside oneself. . . . It makes us aware of how frail and tiny we are and of how much we must depend upon the Master of the Universe.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than the blink of an eye? … I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye in itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

A span of life is nothing. But the man who lives that span, he is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant.

Chaim Potok  Famous Quote

added 6 months ago

We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson, Return to Love, 1992  Famous Quote

added 8 months ago

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

Marianne Williamson, Return to Love, 1992  Famous Quote

America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, bad ass speed.

Ronald Reagan  Famous Quote

Dying is only one thing to be sad over... Living unhappily is something else.

Morrie Schwartz  Famous Quote

When you look at it that way, you can see how absurd it is that we individualize ourselves with our fences and hoarded possessions.

Morrie Schwartz  Famous Quote

Margaret Thatcher  Famous Quote

I raise up my voice—not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. … We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.

Maya Angelou  Famous Quote

Amy Poehler  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.

Carl Sagan, Cosmos  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

Language, that most human invention, can enable what, in principle, should not be possible. It can allow all of us, even the congenitally blind, to see with another person’s eyes.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

To be ourselves we must have ourselves – possess, if need be re-possess, our life-stories. We must “recollect” ourselves, recollect the inner drama, the narrative, of ourselves. A man needs such a narrative, a continuous inner narrative, to maintain his identity, his self.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

There will be no one like us when we are gone, but then there is no one like anyone else, ever. When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate—the genetic and neural fate—of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death. I cannot pretend I am without fear. But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved; I have been given much and I have given something in return; I have read and traveled and thought and written. I have had an intercourse with the world, the special intercourse of writers and readers. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

At 11, I could say ‘I am sodium’ (Element 11), and now at 79, I am gold.

In examining disease, we gain wisdom about anatomy and physiology and biology. In examining the person with disease, we gain wisdom about life.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

I cannot pretend I am without fear. But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved; I have been given much and I have given something in return; I have read and traveled and thought and written.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

We speak not only to tell other people what we think, but to tell ourselves what we think. Speech is a part of thought.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears - it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear. But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more - it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life. For them, music is not a luxury, but a necessity.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

My religion is nature. That’s what arouses those feelings of wonder and mysticism and gratitude in me.

Oliver Sacks  Famous Quote

added 1 year ago

All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors--in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.
