"In order to live fully, you have to be present for it.... You do that by paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and being non-judgmental. This requires a great deal of kindness toward yourself, which you deserve."-Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD
"Let's stop thinking that things outside our control will bring us happiness. The magic seeds of contentment are planted deep within us. Happiness that the world cannnot take away only flourishes in the secret garden of our souls. Happiness is a living emotion."-Sarah Ban Breathnach
"There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room every day even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person."-Rumor Godden in "A House with Four Rooms."
