The more you aim at it and make it a target,

to a cause greater than oneself.

When you are alone you are not alone,
you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.
When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.
You are feeling that it would have been
better if the other were there -
your friend, your wife, your mother,
your beloved, your husband.
It would have been good if the other
were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
- Osho

If you are disabled, it is probably not your fault,
but it is no good blaming the world or expecting it to take pity on you.

one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well.
- Stephen Hawking

Sometimes, indeed, there is such a discrepancy
between the genius and his human qualities
that one has to ask oneself whether
a little less talent might not have been better.

When one gets angry, it is always angry AT someone -
perhaps a friend or spouse, perhaps a stranger,

perhaps God, or perhaps oneself.
In any case, when one gets angry,
they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

To accuse others for one's own misfortunes
is a sign of want of education.
To accuse oneself shows that one's education has begun.

shows that one's education is complete.

I always pass on good advice.
It is the only thing to do with it.
It is never of any use to oneself.

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't
