- Albert Schweitzer

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail,

- Thomas Jefferson

A man is a method, a progressive arrangement; a selecting principle,

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.

for force only causes resistance.

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past

The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

a lot more pleasure than they do pain.
- Tony Robbins

This is no time... to keep silent.
- Edward R. Murrow

as he advances through life,

The very nature of the world is constant change.
You set a goal and create a plan to achieve it;

your goals and maintain your happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Constant development is the law of life,
and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas
in order to appear consistent
drives himself into a false position.

Life is a constant oscillation
between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
- H. L. Mencken

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

There is no doubt that life can be a bumpy ride.
But so were those roller coasters you loved as a kid.
Savor the adventure.
Find excitement in the uncertainty and the constant change.
Even let a touch of fear add spice to your life -
as you did on that roller coaster.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A consistent state of Serenity and Compassion
is living an Inspired Life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If we want to direct our lives,
we must take control of our consistent actions.
It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives,
but what we do consistently.
- Anthony Robbins

Consistent physical structures can
allow unbounded intuitive clarity.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

The lawyer's truth is not Truth,
but consistency or a consistent expediency.
- Henry David Thoreau

I am persuaded that the world has been tricked into adopting
some false and most pernicious notions about consistency -
and to such a degree that the average man has
turned the rights and wrongs of things entirely around
and is proud to be "consistent," unchanging, immovable, fossilized,
where it should be his humiliation.
- Mark Twain
