Personal importance, or taking things personally,
is the maximum expression of selfishness
because we make the assumption that everything is about me.
- don Miguel Ruiz

These are the keys to a great life...
taking oneself lightly, forgiveness, and acceptance.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.
We leave our most profoundly positive impact
on those around us by the nature of our lives
and the example we set -
not by how busy we are,
or how important we believe we are.
Setting an example of being loving, relaxed and joyful,
regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.
I want my tombstone to read, "Inspired others,"
rather than, "Never missed a day at the office."

The only way to store information is by agreement.
The belief system is like a Book of Law that rules our mind.

Humans punish themselves endlessly
for not being what they believe they should be.
We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others,
but we cannot accept and love ourselves.
- don Miguel Ruiz

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.

There is something about a rainbow
that just can't be ignored.
Whether spectacle of nature or covenant,

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There was endless action - not just football,
but sailboats, tennis and other things:

of the table laying out the prevailing wisdom,
but everyone else weighing in with their opinions and taking part.
- Charles Spalding

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food;
therefore,
if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life

Government is an unnecessary evil.
Human beings, when accustomed to taking responsibility for their own behavior,
can cooperate on a basis of mutual trust and helpfulness.
- Fred Woodworth

Success is often the result of taking
a misstep in the right direction.
- Al Bernstein

True courage is taking another small step each day
toward achieving your vision.

using my body scrubs and lotions.
- Traci Bingham

I think women are natural caretakers.
They take care of everybody.
They take care of their husbands and their kids and their dogs,

- Reese Witherspoon

Getting information off the Internet is like taking
a drink from a fire hydrant.
- Mitchell Kapor

Just as a mother finds pleasure in taking her little child on her lap,
there to feed and caress him, in like manner our loving

taking in nature and animals, spending time reading,
trying to understand the universe, where science and the spiritual meet.
- Joan Jett

Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do.
Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
- Amy Heckerling

One can not love without opening oneself,
and opening oneself, that's taking the risk of suffering.
One does not have control.

the ones at home.

to notice and to pay attention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Take some time in a quiet place to contemplate
the balance between being of service -

Without service, life becomes meaningless.

And there comes a time when one must take a position
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Angels can fly because they can take themselves lightly.
- Gilbert (G. K.) Chesterton

Take time to play.
It is the source of perpetual youth.

Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

the actions we take.

A bowl of soup served with love
is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward
our biological creation and nurture.
Our parents gift us with life and nurture,
and we gift our children with life and nurture.
While this much is essential to continued human existence,
choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Rumi (Persian poet 1207-1273)

Human nature is so constituted that
if we take absolutely no notice of anger or abuse,

That's what learning is, after all;
not whether we lose the game,
but how we lose and h
ow we've changed because of it
and what we take away from it
that we never had before,
to apply to other games.
Losing, in a curious way, is winning.
- Richard Bach
