One I found yesterday:

'Men are not against you; they are merely for themselves.'

So true. I take things personally when they were never even about me in the first place, but just about the person acting in ways they were already going to act whether i was around or not.
Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructable be found in us. - Pema Chodron

I just read this, been a crazy week. I love this thread!

This is framed and on my bathroom wall it's one of the first things I see every morning:

Let go of anger,
Let go of hate
Live with your heart
and sidestep the dangers

What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.

This quote is from Samuel Johnson

"Where grief is fresh, any attempt to divert it only irritates."

We're so quick to want grief to go away but when you miss someone who has been lost, whether that's a friend, family member or your old self, grief deserves some time.
