If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line9/25/06

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I — not events — have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
— Groucho Marx
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line5/15/06

Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line5/15/06

Happiness calls out responsive gladness in others. There is enough sadness in the world without yours ... never doubt the excellence and permanence of what is yet to be. Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness.
— Helen Keller
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line2/27/06

Throughout my life, I've managed to feel young by maintaining an open mind and continually knowing, at a deep level, that all is well in my universe. I stay awake to 'signs' around me and am generally proactive. With time and perspective things always turn out to be worthwhile — often in unexpected ways. For, as Henry David Thoreau said, "There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself."
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line7/25/05

It is never too late to become what you might have been.
— George Elliot
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/6/05

— Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 8/16/04

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Berthold Auerbach, German Novelist (1812-1882)
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/21/04

The Laws of Reasoning consist of the ground, the path, and the result. ...Suffering is in the mind. How we perceive happiness determines our suffering or not.
— His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 5/24/04

For almost forty years I relied heavily upon my sense of deductive reasoning and logic. Thankfully, I chose to shift my approach to life and gradually learned to be guided by my intuitive nature. Today, I consciously operate in 'The Flow.' I avoid analyzing and dissecting most of the time ... which brings me more happiness than I've ever known.
— Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 12/15//03

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
Michelangelo, Italian Painter, Sculptor, Architect and Poet (1475-1564)
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/30//03

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.
Agnes Repplier, American Essayist (1855-1950)
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 2/10//03

Each choice we make causes a ripple effect in our lives. When things happen to us, it is the reaction we choose that can create the difference between the sorrows of our past and the joy in our future.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line

There is no way; each pilgrim must make his own path. "Happiness," said Chamfort, "is not easily won; it is hard to find it in ourselves, and impossible to find it elsewhere.

This is the true joy in life being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
— George Bernard Shaw

Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.”
— Count Leo Tolstoy

In our concern for others, we worry less about ourselves. When we worry less about ourselves an experience of our own suffering is less intense. What does this tell us? Firstly, because our every action has a universal dimension, a potential impact on others’ happiness, ethics are necessary as a means to ensure that we do not harm others. Secondly, it tells us that genuine happiness consists in those spiritual qualities of love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness and so on. For it is these which provide both for our happiness and others’ happiness.
— His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
