Off the Beaten Path





The following are some of my favorite quotes.

Less_Is_More [1]

Mother Theresa

  • God does not command that we do great things, only little things with great love.

Lao Tzu

On Intention

  • If you do not change your direction, you may end up where you are heading.
  • Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny .

On Leadership

  • To lead people, walk behind them.
  • A leader is best when people barely know he exists. When his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: “We did it ourselves!”

On Softness

  • Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. This clearly shows the principle of softness overcoming hardness.
  • One cannot reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.

Dr. Seuss

On Confidence

  • Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

On Dedication

  • Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

On Openness

  • I do not like green eggs and ham! I do not like them Sam-I-am. You do not like them. So you say. Try them! try them! And you may. Try them and you may I say.
  • There are many things you can learn about but… you’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

On Happiness

  • Most people are searching for happiness outside of themselves. That’s a fundamental mistake. Happiness is something that you are and it comes from the way you think. Look for the blessing in all situations.

On Judging

  • When you judge another, you do not define them; you define yourself. After all, how people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

On Kindness

  • When you have a choice to be right or to be kind, choose to be kind.

On Love

  • Love what you do and do what you love.
  • Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.

On Others’ Opinion

  • Become independent of the good opinion of others and be free from the need for approval.

On the Peace

  • Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is rather than as you think it should be.

On Perspective

  • If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
  • There is no stress in the world; only people thinking stressful thoughts and then acting on them.

On Relationships

  • See the light in others and treat them as if that is all you see.
