Learn not to worry about little things

“Often we allow ourselves to get all worked up about things that, upon closer examination, aren’t really that big a deal. We focus on little problems and blow them out of proportion. … It pays enormous dividends if we learn not to worry about little things.”- Richard Carlson

Beauty of life

“So many people spend so much of their life energy ‘sweating the small stuff’ that they completely lose touch with the magic and beauty of life.”- Richard Carlson

The longing itself becomes an additional source of suffering

Our way through life should not be difficult- but it is. The fact is that our lives are filled mostly with picking and choosing. ‘I want this, not that.’ And because things are not anything other than the way they really, we suffer. … We so desperately want things to be the way they were. But they are not. So the longing itself becomes an additional source of suffering.”- Richard Carlson
