~ If a leader needs followers, he will never let them be free.
~ A situation is a challenge only when you feel something about you is at stake.
~ After a few years of a soul-sapping routine, you stop feeling bad about it. Corpses don’t complain. The reward is respectability and progress.
~ You cannot accept yourself without accepting the totality of existence. When you are complaining against everything, how can you be alright with yourself? When you are offended and hurt by everything, how can you be alright with yourself? People talk about accepting themselves, but accepting themselves is never in isolation. It has to come with an acceptance of everything and acceptance does not mean compromise. Acceptance means “Whatever there is, in the middle of all of it, I am okay. There might be disease all around, but in the middle of diseases, I am healthy. Disease can never touch my core, my essence. It might even touch my body, but it can never touch my soul”. This is that inner confidence. Now you do not need to wear make-up.
