When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
