The Belief that Becomes Truth

The belief that becomes truth for me… is that which allows me the best use of my strength, the best means of putting my virtues into action.

~ André Gide


The only label you should wear is your name…

We are all a unique collection of atoms, and there’s only one of each of us. The only label you should wear is your name. Let your actions define you because there’s another spectrum: how you live your life, what you do with whatever you’re given, how you treat the other people around you. These are your actions. This is your name. That’s who you are.

~ Cory, “Girl Meets Farkle”, Girl Meets World

Path to cheerfulness

Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not… Thus the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if our cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and to act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there…

~ William James
