And

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.””

And

“The way we see the problem is the problem.”

And

“There are three constants in life … Change, Choice, and Principles.”

And

“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.”

And

“Be a light, not a judge. Be a model, not a critic.”

And

“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.”

And

“Two people can see the same thing, disagree, and yet both be right. It’s not logical; it’s psychological.”

And

“If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control — myself.”

And

“It’s not what happens to us, but our response to what happens to us that hurts us.”

And

“Live out of your imagination, not your history.”

And

“Live, love, laugh, leave a legacy.”

And

“A cardinal principle of Total Quality escapes too many managers: you cannot continuously improve interdependent systems and processes until you progressively perfect interdependent, interpersonal relationships.”

And

“Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.”

And

“Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”

And

“Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character.”

And

“We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.”

And

“We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.”
