Living in fear of anything is a terrible waste
of what could be a great life.
If you live in fear of losing your job,

it is clear that they own you.

When we come into the present,
we begin to feel the life around us again,

our loss, our secret hopes our love -
everything that moves us most deeply.
- Jack Kornfield

his unhappiness is his own fault...
Nothing else is the cause of anxiety or loss of tranquility
except our own opinion.

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If American men are obsessed with money,
American women are obsessed with weight.

and I do not know which talk is the more boring.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
