You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
You have to make the rules, not follow them.
Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by passion.
United we stand; divided we fall.
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
Don't complain about the snow on your neighbor's roof when your own doorstep is unclean.
