When you talk about your troubles, your ailments, your diseases, your hurts, you give longer life to what makes you unhappy. Talking about your grievances merely adds to those grievances. Give recognition only to what you desire. Think and talk only about the good things that add to your enjoyment of your work and life. If you don’t talk about your grievances, you’ll be delighted to find them disappearing quickly. - Thomas Dreier

The currents of life are always streaming in one direction. They will never change the course of their flow, just as the sun never changes its direction. Man must adapt himself to this flow of life, and as a reward he can find complete harmony. All of man’s ills come from his crossing life’s currents. No man can cross the ocean in a sailing-boat by defying the winds; he must adjust his sails to use them. - K. Sri Dhammananda

The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decisions, raising in ones favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. -  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
