I think that inside every adult is the heart of a child. We just gradually convince ourselves that we have to act more like adults.
Let us fill our hearts with our own compassion - towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Memory is the way we keep telling ourselves our stories - and telling other people a somewhat different version of our stories.
Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves.
We must give more in order to get more. It is the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest.
Orison Swett Marden
Nobody's going to fix the world for us, but working together, making use of technological innovations and human communities alike, we might just be able to fix it ourselves.
Our language is the reflection of ourselves. A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.
I'm not an optimist. I'm a realist. And my reality is that we live in a multifaceted, multicultural world. And maybe once we stop labeling ourselves, then maybe everyone else will.
It's a life's journey of finding ourselves, finding our power, and living for yourself, not for everyone else.
In articulating all my feelings about marriage equality, I almost don't know where to begin. And perhaps that's part of the problem. Why do we have to explain ourselves when it comes to issues of fairness and equality? Why is common sense not enough?

Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.
I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves.
We can think so much about life and take ourselves so seriously; I mean, I like to tell people, 'Don't take life too seriously' because you'll cloud the experience. That's what the meaning of life is to me - being able to enjoy the moment.
In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.
Marquis de Sade

The problem with the stigma around mental health is really about the stories that we tell ourselves as a society. What is normal? That's just a story that we tell ourselves.
Comedy is to force us to observe ourselves in ways that are humorous and yet, at the end of the day, that cause us enough discomfort with the status quo to make a change.
Michael Eric Dyson
The good inside of all of us is wrapped in a layer of apathy, and we forget how much potential we have within us, in each and every one of us, to change the world for the better for ourselves and our children, and thus to bring about oneness.

Today, the biggest challenge we must meet is the one we present to ourselves. To not become a nation that places entitlement ahead of accomplishment. To not become a country that places comfortable lies ahead of difficult truths. To not become a people that thinks so little of ourselves that we demand no sacrifice from each other.
We all have different desires and needs, but if we don't discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we will live passively and unfulfilled.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
