Thought of the Moment

Owning Our Mistakes

It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it. People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment. But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake.

- Dr. Stephen Covey

 

Courage

You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

- Eric Roth

 

There is no destination where we will feel like we've made it.

There is no destination where we will feel like we've finally made it. If there is a universal answer to what brings fulfillment, it likely includes equal measures of working to help others and being grateful for what we have.

 

Love

If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.

- John O'Donahue

 

Beauty that Doesn't Fade

People who are comfortable with themselves and who strive to be authentic and kind exude a special kind of beauty, one that doesn't fade with age.

 

Religion

When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.

- Abraham Lincoln

 

Living with a generous spirit

I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.

- Abraham Lincoln

 

Real Togetherness

Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe. The others have a certain stickiness, they stick to the mass.

- D. H. Lawrence

 

Love and Separation

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

- Kahlil Gibran

 

Discovering Your Contribution to the World

If you want to know where to find your contribution to the world, look at your wounds. When you learn how to heal them, teach others.

- Emily Maroutian
