    determination Quotes

    The third element of success is your state: You must replace a default state of pessimism or anger with one of determination, of will, of generosity, of curiosity, of gratitude.

    — Teresa of Avila
    Buddhism is the most active one! The whole time, we're dealing with the mind and how to tame it, and how to transcend our ordinary conventional mind.

It's certainly not a matter of lying back and expecting it all to happen. If we don't make it happen, it won't!
    — Tenzin Palmo

    We were together because we were addicted to each other. I was never as intoxicated as I was when we were happy together, and I knew it was the same for him.
