Lightness Quotations

Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.
Joan Lunden

I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

Steve Jobs

William James

Benjamin Disraeli

Julia Roberts
