“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.”

— M. Scott Peck

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”

— Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Besides learning to see, there is another art to be learned — not to see what is not.”

— Maria Mitchell

I’ve learned that if I put a smile on my face when I’m feeling
down, my spirits will automatically lift. The body knows that a
smile means happiness.

Knowing this doesn’t mean I’m always willing to do it. Many
times, I have absolutely refused to cheer myself up. Isn’t that
interesting!

It’s a clue that sometimes the ego positively enjoys being
miserable. It can be enlightening to explore the pay-offs we get
from our black moods.

“Depend upon it that if a man talks of his misfortunes there is
something in them that is not disagreeable to him; for where
there is nothing but pure misery there is never any recourse to
the mention of it.”

— Samuel Johnson
