We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...
They offer sufficient proof that everything
can be taken from a man but one thing:
to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Society is always taken by surprise
at any new example of common sense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature puts no question and answers none which we mortals ask.
She has long ago taken her resolution.

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

The one serious conviction that a man should have

- Nicholas Murray Butler

A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful;

Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must
be taken one step at a time.

to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.

- Fred Allen

I always avoid prophesying beforehand,
because it is a much better policy to prophesy
after the event has already taken place.
- Winston Churchill

When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise,
life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange -
my youth.
- Sara Teasdale

Everyone who's ever taken a shower has an idea.
It's the person who gets out of the shower,
dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.
- Nolan Bushnell

Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do.
Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
- Amy Heckerling

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A vow is a purely religious act
which cannot be taken in a fit of passion.
It can be taken only with a mind purified
and composed and with God as witness.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

I have taken more out of alcohol
than alcohol has taken out of me.
- Winston Churchill

Unless action is taken soon - unless we can display
the same vision of that earlier period -
we will lose the treasure of California's open space
and environmental beauty.
- Adam Schiff

All my life I've taken photographs of people who are
completely at peace being what they were in the situations I photographed them in.
- Jock Sturges

I think Madonna has a great deal of intelligence and capability.
I have a lot of respect for her.
She's taken her career and maximized it with intelligence and creativity.
- Carole King

I have taken an oath in my heart to oppose communism until the day I die.
- Eldridge Cleaver

Society is becoming less and less transparent.
People no longer know where decisions that substantially
affect their lives are taken,
nor by whom, nor how.
- Georg Henrik von Wright

And the two planes that were taking the band and crew
that we had taken out to San Diego were flying out after the show.
And so I was never supposed to be on that plane.
- Reba McEntire

The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and,
having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.
- Carolyn Heilbrun

In my judgment, the greatest risks are international
terrorist groups like al Qaeda and Hezbollah.
The war in Iraq has taken our attention off those priorities.
- Bob Graham

I'd taken three years off to live as a normal person,
so this was my first time back into it,

- Gerald Clarke

I know I am not only the bad conscience of the Nazis.
I am also the bad conscience of the Jews.
Because what I have taken up as my duty was everybody's duty.
- Simon Wiesenthal

Membership of the United Nations gives every member
the right to make a fool of himself,
