So live as if you were living already a second time and as if you have acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act NOW!

Professor Victor Frankl, Holocaust Survivor

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but the thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is.

Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.
