From The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz:
“Agreement One: I am impeccable with my words. I am loving to myself and others – I let go of fear.”
From the Dalai Lama:
“Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstance they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.”
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
Do you have other “words from the wise” to add?
