Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.

Joseph Addison

Emotions that are ordered and given shape are more important than disorderly emotions.

D. H. Lawrence

Dreaming and talking about it won't achieve anything. There is only one person who can determine the shape of your life. You.
Who are you going to be?

Paul Arden

Our bodies are programmed to consume fat and sugars because they're rare in nature... In the same way, we're biologically programmed to be attentive to things that stimulate: content that is gross, violent, or sexual and that gossip which is humiliating, embarrassing, or offensive. If we're not careful, we're going to develop the psychological equivalent of obesity. We'll find ourselves consuming content that is least beneficial for ourselves or society as a whole. Just as the factory farming system that produces and delivers our food shapes what we eat, the dynamics of our media shape what information we consume.

Danah Boyd

Our past may shape us, but it doesn`t define us.

Alyson Noel

I will be mute, and thou shalt guide my steps
Into the covert from the public road,
Till I have learned their drift. A prudent man
Will ever shape his course by what he learns.

Sophocles

If motherhood has taught me anything, it is that I cannot change my children, I can only change myself. Try as I might, I can’t shape either one of them to my desires or designs, but I can choose, moment by moment and day by day, my own reaction to who they are. So perhaps my real job now, and in the year ahead, isn’t to direct my sons’ lives, but to work on becoming more thoughtful and deliberate about my own.

Katrina Kenison

If you work hard enough and assert yourself, and use your mind and imagination, you can shape the world to your desires.

Malcolm Gladwell

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Among geometrical figures you will find every conceivable shape but nothing in the shape of a heart.

Mór Jókai

I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.

Ayn Rand

Each moment in history is a fleeting time, precious and unique. But some stand out as moments of beginning, in which courses are set that shape decades or centuries.

Richard Nixon
