Recognize yourself first, that way you don't depend on recognition from others.

Never assume that you have the perfect life all figured out. Fate may have different plans.

"From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

- Carl Sagan

"There's nothing to fear, but fear itself."

This is my favorite version of that, from Dune the Bene Gesserit Litany:

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Those who want to be in your life will always find a way - the rest will only find excuses.

You cannot invest your self-esteem in the whims and opinions of others – they’re just not *that* special. They can have their whims and opinions, but self-esteem has the word 'self' in it for a reason - it's your opinion of you that matters most.

I neither agree nor disagree with this at this time, but it really gives me stuff to think about as I ponder the big picture, and what if anything is out there in terms of higher powers.

"True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing."
Socrates 469-399 BC

"I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses."
Johannes Kepler 1571-1630

"My pencil and I are more clever than I."
Albert Einstein 1879-1955

From Thomas Szasz 1920-2012:

"People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates."

"The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget."

"Adulthood is the ever-shrinking period between childhood and old age. It is the apparent aim of modern industrial societies to reduce this period to a minimum."

"Formerly, when religion was strong and science weak, men mistook magic for medicine; now, when science is strong and religion weak, men mistake medicine for magic."

"The proverb warns that 'You should not bite the hand that feeds you.' But maybe you should, if it prevents you from feeding yourself."

"Narcissist: psychoanalytic term for the person who loves himself more than his analyst; considered to be the manifestation of a dire mental disease whose successful treatment depends on the patient learning to love the analyst more and himself less."

"Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and has fears about persons and things; the psychotic has convictions and makes claims about them. In short, the neurotic has problems, the psychotic has solutions."

"He who does not accept and respect those who want to reject life does not truly accept and respect life itself."

"If the dead talk to you, you are a spiritualist; if God talks to you, you are a schizophrenic."
