You've come to know the fortunate and the inauspicious stars, but you don't know whether you yourself are fortunate or lucky.
Turn your attention for a while away from the worries and anxieties. Remind yourself of all your many blessings.
When you focus on how wonderful God is and all the great things He's done... is doing... and even will do in your life, your natural response will be praise, adoration and awe. Don't let yourself ever get used to it... stay amazed!
Healing yourself is connected with healing others.
God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you.
The time when most of you should withdraw into yourself is when you are forced to be in a crowd.
Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent.
I think they all went too far. Their jeans got too low, their tops got too see-through. Personally, I think that sexy is keeping yourself mysterious. I'm really an old-fashioned girl, and I think I'm totally sexy.
Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others.

The next time you feel unworthy, inadequate or inferior, remember that these experiences have nothing to do with humbleness, any more than lowering yourself to connect with another individual has to do with humbleness. There are no lower or higher individuals in the perception of a humble person. There are only souls. There is only love.

The better you know yourself, the better your relationship with the rest of the world.
If you manifest your true self through nature and your normal surroundings, I find that the most eerie. Like when you see birds suddenly start flying in a different direction or when you see moths forming weird shapes, I think that's the weirdest way to let yourself be known.
Once you take yourself too seriously the art will suffer.
Maynard James Keenan

You can be fat and love yourself. You can be fat and have a great damn personality. You can be fat and sew your own clothes. But you can't be fat and healthy.
Pleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon another's great tribulation; not because any man's troubles are a delectable joy, but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant.
Grieve and mourn for yourself not once or twice, but again and again.

John F. Kennedy
