I generally find that comparison is the fast track to unhappiness. No one ever compares themselves to someone else and comes out even. Nine times out of ten, we compare ourselves to people who are somehow better than us and end up feeling more inadequate.
Don't think that there's a different, better child 'hiding' behind the autism. This is your child. Love the child in front of you. Encourage his strengths, celebrate his quirks, and improve his weaknesses, the way you would with any child. You may have to work harder on some of this, but that's the goal.
Claire Scovell LaZebnik
Science may never come up with a better office communication system than the coffee break.
America is the land of the second chance - and when the gates of the prison open, the path ahead should lead to a better life.
George W. Bush
It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.
Robert Green Ingersoll
I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it's better than college. People should educate themselves - you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I'd written a thousand stories.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is better to travel well than to arrive.
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.
If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.
In my life I've learned that true happiness comes from giving. Helping others along the way makes you evaluate who you are. I think that love is what we're all searching for. I haven't come across anyone who didn't become a better person through love.
We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.
Dwight L. Moody
The torment of precautions often exceeds the dangers to be avoided. It is sometimes better to abandon one's self to destiny.
I'm not shy about heated debate or passionate discourse, but when people get crazy or rude, that's a buzz kill. There's got to be a better code of conduct, some basic etiquette.
You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we're hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.
And I hope that five years and 10 years from now, I'll be a better man, a more mature man, a wiser man, a more humble man and a more spirited man to serve the good of my people and the good of humanity.
Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn't thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I'm just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn't paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing.
When you feel sad, it's okay. It's not the end of the world. Everyone has those days when you doubt yourself, and when you feel like everything you do sucks, but then there's those days when you feel like Superman. It's just the balance of the world. I just write to feel better.
I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past.
To simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed.
Perhaps the saddest irony of depression is that suicide happens when the patient gets a little better and can again function sufficiently.
Better do a good deed near at home than go far away to burn incense.
Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.
Some memories are realities, and are better than anything that can ever happen to one again.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
