Viktor E. Frankl
“And I quoted from Nietzsche: That which does not kill me, makes me stronger.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Francis of Assisi
“For it is in giving that we receive.”
Francis of Assisi

“The man, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it. Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him. In this lies the dignity of daring.”
Karlfried Graf Durckheim, The Way of Transformation: Daily Life as Spiritual Practice

Epictetus
“Remember that you ought to behave in life as you would at a banquet. As something is being passed around it comes to you; stretch out your hand, take a portion of it politely. It passes on; do not detain it. Or it has not come to you yet; do not project your desire to meet it, but wait until it comes in front of you. So act toward children, so toward a wife, so toward office, so toward wealth.”
Epictetus

Epictetus
“Don't seek to have events happen as you wish, but wish them to happen as they do happen, and all will be well with you.”
Epictetus
