„No matter what choice you make, it doesn't define you. Not forever. People can make bad choices and change their minds and hearts and do good things later; just as people can make good choices and then turn around and walk a bad path. No choice we make lasts our whole life. If there's ever a choice you've made that you no longer agree with, you can make another choice.“
— Jonathan Maberry, Dust & Decay
„Don't follow after the object of hatred, look at the angry mind. Anger liberated by itself as it arises is mirrorlike wisdom.
Don't chase after the object of pride, look at the grasping mind. Self-importance liberated as it arises is the wisdom of equanimity.
Don't hanker after the object of desire, look at the craving mind.“
— Dilgo Khyentse Bhutanese Buddhist Lama 1910 - 1991
„Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice! It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.“
— William Jennings Bryan United States Secretary of State 1860 - 1925
„No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves. That's all.“
— Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman: 24 Stories
„Searching for truth is itself a big illusion because whatever we term the truth is always and everywhere. We don't have to search for it; we don't have to seek it; it always is. Now the only problem is your inability to experience life beyond what you call mind; or right now your capability to experience life only through the limited dimension that we call mind. That is the only problem.“
— Sadhguru, Himalayan Lust
