Just don't let the hype of what people are saying and how much they love you, y'know, just take the compliment and be thankful that people are complimenting you, but don't let it consume you; don't let your circumstances around you and the way people view you make you act a certain way.
Mary J. Blige
I got interested in the emotions after studying patients who had lost the ability to emote and feel under certain circumstances. Many of those patients also had major impairments in their ability to make decisions.
During bad circumstances, which is the human inheritance, you must decide not to be reduced. You have your humanity, and you must not allow anything to reduce that. We are obliged to know we are global citizens. Disasters remind us we are world citizens, whether we like it or not.
Circumstances cause us to act the way we do. We should always bear this in mind before judging the actions of others. I realized this from the start during World War II.
We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.
The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts.
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not our circumstances.
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
There are no extraordinary men... just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.

The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.
I think it's important for us as a society to remember that the youth within juvenile justice systems are, most of the time, youths who simply haven't had the right mentors and supporters around them - because of circumstances beyond their control.
To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.
I know I'm a good professional, I know that no one's harder on me than myself and that's never going to change, under any circumstances.
The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go.
I never played sports or got into the whole guy camaraderie of, like, 'I love you, man! Seniors forever!'
