Quotes by Amanda Enayati  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Studies show that people who are prone to guilt are more forgiving. They handle anger more constructively, experience more empathy and have a greater ability to see others’ perspectives. Those prone to shame, on the other hand, are more likely to hold grudges and are less likely to forgive when they feel wronged. Shame is also associated with feelings of anger and aggression and the tendency to blame others.”
Amanda Enayati, Seeking Serenity: The 10 New Rules for Health and Happiness in the Age of Anxiety

“All defensiveness and emotional tumult is a fear response because of your need for acceptance and ruthless control of the territory of your safe fantasy world.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

“Be not the slave of your moods, but their master. But if you are so angry, so depressed and so sore that your spirit cannot find deliverance and peace even in prayer, then quickly go and give some pleasure to someone lowly or sorrowful, or to a guilty or innocent sufferer! Sacrifice yourself, your talent, your time, your rest to another, to one who has to bear a heavier load than you -- and your unhappy mood will dissolve into a blessed, contented submission to God.”
Abdul'-Baha

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde
