Be happy when your troubles are at their worst, it means that anything that happens will be an improvement.

   We may not be responsible for many of the things that happen to us, but we are   responsible for how we react when they do happen. 

Strong people make as many mistakes as weak people. The difference is that strong people admit them, laugh about them, and learn from them. That's how they become strong.

To have suffered much is like knowing many languages. It gives the suffer access to many more people.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
