We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...

to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

For me, nothing has ever taken precedence over being
a mother and having a family and a home.

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

be taken one step at a time.

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise,
life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange -
my youth.

which cannot be taken in a fit of passion.
It can be taken only with a mind purified
and composed and with God as witness.

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse
to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
- Mark Caine

Everyone who's ever taken a shower has an idea.
It's the person who gets out of the shower,
dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.
- Nolan Bushnell

Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge,
then a leap taken.
- David Herbert Lawrence

Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do.
Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
- Amy Heckerling

A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful;
but when taken in excess it is nearly always bad for the health.
- Clarence Day

The one serious conviction that a man should have
is that nothing should be taken too seriously.
- Nicholas Murray Butler

We've taken the view that if the rest of the world
would democratize and create market economies,
that would spread the benefits of prosperity around the world,
and that it would enhance our own prosperity,
and our own stability and security, as well.
- Jeffrey Sachs

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You see people who have been very heavy in their life
who have taken that body,
trimmed it down, firmed it up through discipline,
exercise and being able to say no.
Eating properly, that all comes into it.
- Mike Ditka

The fifth amendment of the U.S.
Constitution guarantees that no private property shall
be taken for a public use without the payment of just compensation.
- Elton Gallegly

When a Piece or Pawn is in a situation to be taken by the enemy,
it is said to be en prise.
To put a piece en prise, is to play it so that it may be captured.
- Howard Staunton

Of course I've already taken a very modest position on the monetary system,
I do take the position that we should just end the Fed.
- Ron Paul

Millions have been taken from me.
If you are not on top of it and you make a lot of money,
and you trust business managers, then,
yes, money will be taken from you.
- Stephanie Mills

One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked,
