Quote of the Day #25: Thich Nhat Hanh

Happiness is impermanent, like everything else. In order for happiness to be extended and renewed, you have to learn how to feed your happiness. Nothing can survive without food, including happiness; your happiness can die if you don’t know how to nourish it. If you cut a flower but you don’t put it in some water, the flower will wilt in a few hours. Even if happiness is already manifesting, we have to continue to nourish it.

Quote of the Day #23: Thich Nhat Hanh

If we can model the ability to embody nonfear and nonattachment, it is more precious than any money or material wealth. Fear spoils our lives and makes us miserable. We cling to objects and people, like a drowning person clings to any object that floats by. By practicing nonattachment and sharing this wisdom with others, we give the gift of nonfear. Everything is impermanent. This moment passes. The object of our craving walks away, but we can know happiness is always possible.

Quote of the Day #2: Hal Elrod

The old saying, “You snooze, you lose,” may have a much deeper meaning than any of us realizes. When you delay waking up until you have to–meaning you wait until the last possible moment to get out of bed and start your day–consider that what you’re actually doing is resisting your life. Every time you hit the snooze button, you’re in a state of resistance to your day, to you life, and to waking up and creating the life you say you want… It’s as if you’re saying, I don’t want to live my life, at least not to the fullest.
