Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together,but do so with all your heart.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Death smiles at us all, but all a man can do is smile back.

The art of living resembles wrestling more than dancing.
