Quotes That Resonate

Today, my brother shared a video to me and I was happy to see that it was of many powerful quotes. From that video, I wrote down some of the quotes that stood out to me. I think it’s good to make notes of things that can help you because as we like to admit or not, positive things don’t stick with us as easily as negative things. So here is my friendly reminder to myself and for anyone else that could benefit from this.

  • You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
  • Man is affected not by events but by the view he takes of them.
  • It is not death a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
  • The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls out your best.
  • Be discriminating about what images and ideas you permit into your mind.
  • When you are offended at anyone’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings, then you will forget your anger.
  • Every night before going to sleep, we must ask ourselves: What weakness did I overcome today? What virtue did I acquire?
  • Seek not the good in external things, seek it in yourselves.
  • First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.
  • From this instant on, vow to STOP disappointing yourself. Separate yourself from the mob. Decide to be extraordinary and do what you need to do – now.
  • No one is free who is not a master of themselves.
