“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.”
― Maya Angelou, Poet
“Your strength is in your calmness, in the clarity of your mind. Strength comes from putting the negative aside without reacting. Win in calmness, in consciousness, in balance.”
― Amrit Desai, Amrit Yoga: Explore, Expand, Experience the Spiritual Depth of Yoga
“You are living as if destined to live for ever; your own frailty never occurs to you; you don’t notice how much time has already passed, but squander it as though you had a full and overflowing supply — though all the while that very day which you are devoting to somebody or something may be your last. You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire… How late it is to begin really to live just when life must end! How stupid to forget our mortality, and put off sensible plans to our fiftieth and sixtieth years, aiming to begin life from a point at which few have arrived.”
― Seneca, The Shortness of Life
