"Happiness is the result of my decision to be happy. There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. In other words, happiness is a feeling I tap into, not an outcome of events. I can be happy without changing anything in my life except my relationship to my own thinking. I decide to be happy and commit myself to making happiness my state of mind, rather than relying on a set of circumstances to do it for me."
"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do."
"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins."
"If you’re not enjoying the journey, you probably won’t enjoy the destination."
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."
~George Bernard Shaw
"If you hear a voice within saying, ”You can’t paint”, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced."
~Vincent Van Gogh
"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."
"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last and the greatest of human freedoms, to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstance, to choose one’s own way of life."
"You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it."
