“Nurturing your own development isn’t selfish. It’s actually a great gift to other people.”
Rick Hanson, Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom

“The remedy is not to suppress negative experiences; when they happen, they happen. Rather, it is to foster positive experiences—and in particular, to take them in so they become a permanent part of you.”
Rick Hanson, Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom
