    Earth teach me stillness
    as the grasses are stilled with light.
    Earth teach me suffering
    as the old stones suffer with memory.
    Earth teach me humility
    as blossoms are humble with beginning.
    Earth teach me caring
    as the mother who secures her young.

    Earth teach me courage
    as the tree which stands all alone.
    Earth teach me limitation
    as the ant which crawls on the ground.
    Earth teach me freedom
    as the eagle which soars in the sky.

    Earth teach me resignation
    as the leaves which die in the fall.
    Earth teach me generation
    as the seed which rises in the spring.
    Earth teach me to forget myself
    as melted snow forgets its life.
    Earth teach me to remember kindness
    as dry fields weep with rain.

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

    There's a lot of mediocrity being celebrated, and a lot of wonderful stuff being ignored or discouraged.

    Acceptance without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western religion, rejection without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western science.

    help me always
    to speak the truth quietly,
    to listen with an open mind
    when others speak,
    and to remember the peace
    that may be found in silence.

    Cherokee Prayer

    Certain things catch your eye,
    But pursue only those
    that capture your heart.

    Perhaps the greatest rudenesses of our time come
    not from the callousness of strangers, but from
    the solicitousness of intimates who believe that
    their frank criticisms are always welcome, and who
    feel free to “be themselves”with those they love,
    which turns out to mean being their worst selves,
    while saving their best behavior for strangers.

    Rest satisfied with doing well, and leave others to talk of you as they will.

    “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…
    It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.”

    Laughter comes out of health.
    It’s an overflowing energy.
    That’s why children can laugh and their laughter is total.
    Their whole body is involved in it — when they laugh you
    can see their toes laughing.
    The whole body, every cell,
    every fiber of the body, is laughing and vibrating.
    They are so full of health, so vital; everything is flowing.
