    "Change is usually what we want the other person to do, isn’t it? When I speak about the other person, I want to include the government, big business, the boss or coworker, the Internal Revenue Service, foreigners; the school, husband, wife, mother, father, children, et cetera—anyone other than ourselves. We don’t want to change, but we want everybody else to change so our lives will be different. And yet, of course, any changes that we are going to make at all have to come from within ourselves."

    "Change means that we free ourselves from feelings of isolation, separation, loneliness, anger, fear and pain. We create lives filled with wonderful peacefulness, where we can relax and enjoy life as it comes to us—where we know that everything will be all right. I like to use the premise that “Life is wonderful, all is perfect in my world, and I always move into greater good.” In that way, it doesn’t matter to me which direction my life takes, because I know it’s going to be wonderful. Therefore, I can enjoy all sorts of situations and circumstances."

    It's not the size of your dreams that determines whether or not they come true, but the size of the actions you take that implies their inevitable arrival.

    And just so you know... the bigger the dream, the bigger the action.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.
    I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.
    Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully -- if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will gather the courage to do what is right and take responsibility for my own actions.
