Within Yourself

All too often people seek things like peace, happiness, etc. in external things (e.g., virtual worlds created by MMORPGs) that they actually can find within themselves instead. I hope that you find the following quotes to be inspirational and help remind you of all of the things within yourself that you have and control.

All the wonders you seek are within yourself.
- Sir Thomas Brown

Great is the man who has not lost his childlike heart.
- Mencius

Who we are is more important than any philosophy.
- Morgan Green

So never let a cloudy day ruin your sunshine, for even if you can't see it, the sunshine is still there, inside of you ready to shine when you will let it.
- Amy Pitzele

The inner thought coming from the heart represents the real motives and desires. These are the cause of action.
- Raymond Holliwell

Listen to yourself, for only you really know the truth.
- Morgan Green

People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.
- Ramona L. Anderson
