Marcus Aurelius

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.
Lao Tzu

Perhaps I am stronger than I think.
Thomas Merton

When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.

I read these quotes very early this morning. I knew I had a very busy day and perhaps some bumps in the road. Your quotes helped me keep a sunny attitude. And I'm here to tell about it.
Thanks Don.
