Life speeds by and no matter how much joy there is, there is sadness.
Now I cry without tears
Just like breathing, I cry again
The sadness that became a home
Though I try to take a step out, I cry at the doorstep
Identify the things and people that make you feel unhappy and eliminate them from your life. Nothing good can come from them.
Old age is not in itself matter for sorrow; it is matter for thanks, if we have left our work done behind us.
When the soul suffers too much, it develops a taste for misfortune.
Let`s tell the truth to people. When people ask, `How are you?` have the nerve sometimes to answer truthfully. You must know, however, that people will start avaoiding you because, they, too, have knees that pain them and heads that hurt and they don`t want to know about yours. But think of it this way: If people avoid you, you will have more time to meditate and do fine research on a cure for whatever truly afflicts you.
Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere.
Worry is like interest paid in advance on a debt that never comes due.
I was so scared to give up depression, fearing that somehow the worst part of me was actually all of me.
There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well. So I take the memories as they come, accepting them all, letting them guide me whenever I can.
While you were soaking in self-pity over a misfortune, you might miss an opportunity for a redeeming triumph.
