Ask a question

Here the advice:

Another?
  • "When he makes a mistake, he realizes it. Having realized it, he admits it. Having admitted it, he corrects it. He considers those who point out his faults as his most benevolent teachers. He thinks of his enemy as the shadow that he himself casts."
  • "If one devalues rationality, the world tends to fall apart."
  • ""We don't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people hearts.""
  • "Knocking at the door. It opens. I have been knocking from inside."
  • "The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion, the only reason for time, is so that everything doesn’t happen at once."
  • "We know so little about one another. We embrace a shadow and love a dream."
  • "Creativity is freedom from the past."
  • "You can work really hard in your job and make a living. You can work really hard on yourself and make a fortune. Love your life, and leave a legacy worth remembering."
  • "The past feeds the future."
  • "Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are."
  • "I don't want more choices, I want nicer things!"
  • "What or whom does it serve, to act in this way."
  • "I looked, and looked, and this I came to see: That what I thought was you and you, Was really me and me."
  • "Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least."
  • "You are the cause of your feelings, not the effect."
  • "Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."
  • "Show leadership through integrity and self-respect. Define what success means to you. Consistency wins every time."
  • "There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die."
  • "If you can talk brilliantly about a problem, it can create the consoling illusion that it has been mastered."
  • "Empowerment comes with perseverance."
  • "The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone."
  • "Love is a decision - not an emotion!"
  • "You forgive yourself by realizing that nobody can act beyong their level of consciousness."
  • "Your emotions are reflections of your thought process."
  • "Offence is not given, offence is taken."
  • "There's always a possibility of richer maturation - of taking more and more responsibility for yourself and for your life...And this is what I hope...to make you understand how much you gain by taking re-sponsibility for every emotion, every movement you make, every thought you have...We touch each other by honestly being what we are, not intentionally making contact."
  • "Show, don't tell!"
  • "If you can't live with yourself, then there must be two of you"
  • "Feelings are just as much a vehicle of truth as the facts are, they just communicate another equally important side of it."
  • "We don't change. We're doing the same thing today as our ancestors, but under different names. We can look back and see how stupid and evil they were, and assume that we're right and more advanced, but we're unable to see the their flaws in ourselves."
  • "A true work of art is an object that has power to draw our attention, 
to draw perception inwards, to its source of pure beauty. It is never the thought that is true, it is never the person that is loveable, it is never the object that is beautiful. Truth, love, beauty, they reside in the Self. They reside at the source of experience. They are our-self. Truth, Love, Beauty, can not be found anywhere else. Everything that we deeply long for: Truth, Love, Beauty Resides in the simple knowing of our own being as it is. It's knowing of itself, in us, as us."
  • "It's a mistake to confuse pity with love."
  • "Step into your power. Power is about knowing you have an element of control over your life, even if it is as subtle as choosing how you respond. Power is about living your truth and taking ownership. Power is knowing that you can trust your intuition and being ready to act on it. Power is knowing what is in your control and what isn't and being willing to surrender when necessary. Power is not about never being afraid. It's about being with your fear, knowing it, loving it for wanting to protect you but not allowing it to rule you. Power is being self-sufficient without being isolated and power is about being responsible and responsive. Power is self-knowledge, humility and deep, unyielding unconditional love. Power is recognising you are a co-creator in your life."
  • "Honor your talent."
  • "Beware of the temptation of seeing yourself unfairly treated."
  • "Love has the power to destroy or create."
  • "Be lazy as long as you can."
  • "It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; it is the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time."
  • "Guild replaces responsibility. And we rather feel guilty, because it enhance self-importance."
  • "What we think of others we actually think of ourselves, and therefore all attack is a symptom of insanity, an obsession with our own darkness, fear or self loathing."
  • "Honour each hour you have been given."
  • "Make no thought about tomorrow, because tomorrow will take care of itself."
  • "Relying on talent will not work at the elite levels of competition. Endurance, knowing your weak points and discipline are the key elements."
  • "...nobody can stand truth if it is told to him. Truth can be tolerated only if you discover it yourself because then, the pride of discovery makes the truth palatable."
  • "The rhetoric of discursive materials is one of the most salient representations of group ideology. In turn, ideology, particularly when it reflects and perpetuates social hegemony, has a normalizing effect on itself. Ideology shapes identity; identity shapes strategies to set process norms that create social cohesion. Norms of social cohesion become culture; culture reinforces ideology. When these components mirror social hegemony and replicate hegemonic power, they create institutions, like service organizations; these institutions then legitimate and normalize positions of social privilege. Ultimately, ideology and social hegemony reveal themselves through organizational and member practices and organizationally-produced discursive material."
  • "Be aware of virtue. You might only be self-serving. (But that's fine too)"
  • "Everything is shown up by being exposed to the light , and whatever is exposed to the light itself becomes light."
  • "The world is not here to make you happy, it's here to wake you up."
  • "Who are you... at this moment?! Are you the emotions you feel? Are you the thoughts that are running through your head? Or are you the observer behind all that?"
  • "Whatever is taken away will create an attraction for something more appropriate to who you are now, and who you are becoming."
