Quotes December 2, 2016

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
Pema Chodron

Developing inner values is much like physical exercise. The more we train our abilities, the stronger they become. The difference is that, unlike the body, when it comes to training the mind, there is no limit to how far we can go.
Dalai Lama

“If you can’t get emotional about what your believe in your heart, you’re in the wrong business.”
Vince Lombardi

There is no greatness where there is no simplicity, goodness and truth.
Leo Tolstoy,
writer

I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for
Franz Kafka,
