“Things are neither good nor bad but thinking makes them so.”
William Shakespeare
“Pain (disappointment) is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”
Sylvia Boorstein
“You increase your velocity and speed of work. But are afraid that if you stop  you won’t know who you are. You have no affection for what you’re doing but you have an abstract thought that this is what you must be doing in order to be liked. The key to getting out of the cycle and the rut that we often find ourselves then is to become sick of yourself and what you’re saying and who you’re saying it to and how you’re saying Throw yourself away and shed the skin. As Nietzsche said, the snake that does not shed its skin must die”
David Whyte
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
