Happiness can exist only in acceptance. - George Orwell
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
George Orwell

The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
Brian Tracy

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Melody Beattie

The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
Nathaniel Branden

The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high - and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity, fully fledged mutual acceptance, full-blown mutual flourishing, and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction, personal adoration, and moral admiration that is hard to find.
Cornel West
