Friedrich Nietzsche
“To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides. This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality. One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

Steve Maraboli

Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols / The Anti-Christ

Tony Attwood
“When the anger is intense, the person with Asperger's syndrome may be in a 'blind rage' and unable to see the signals indicating that it would be appropriate to stop.

Tony Attwood

Helen S. Rosenau
“Russian Dolls: The more we stay layered up, the more we stay reactive. Instead of healing, our hardnesses bump into one another. We knock each other off balance, intentionally or not. That might sometimes peel away a little paint, making a crack in an outer façade. But those cracks allow light and insights in. And out.”
Helen S. Rosenau, The Messy Joys of Being Human: A Guide to Risking Change and Becoming Happier

Abhishek Ratna
“Every day try to convert your reactions to responses. Reactions are always instinctive, whereas responses are always well thought of, just and right to save a situation from going out of hands, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid taking decisions in anger, anxiety, stress or hurry.”
Abhishek Ratna, small wins BIG SUCCESS: A handbook for exemplary success in post Covid19 Outbreak Era

“Our times and our thoughts shape us. The world is in a constant and ceaseless state of motion and transformation. The only constant is that the universe we occupy today will undergo change based in part because of our personal actions and omissions and partially because the random volitions of the world’s flux are impervious to our meager intentions. We are more reactors than we are enactors of our daily shape testing experiences. Necessity demands that we interpret our physical environment and assign meaning to the mandala of experiences that resonate with our emotional cordage.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Don't react. Respond instead. Exercise some forethought into what you're about to say and do.”

“What are we basing our reaction on? Is it something that actually happened? Or, is it based on reality not meeting our expectations? Are we always right about everything? Do all of our perceptions have to be so rigid? Or can we look at something without expectation, and without judgment?”
Akiroq Brost

“Let you remain close to your source of being & core by being simple in your most of the actions, reactions & thoughts. Let you reflect respect towards your creator by being harmonious, consistent & patient with the way things are in your world. Let you become more happy & peaceful by accepting everything as it is without wishing it were different. Let you restore your relations with the immortal & universe by becoming compassionate toward yourself & everything around yourself. Stay Real, Humble & Committed!”

“No matter how bad or sad I feel, I can switch how I feel in any given moment. That's our power. It's in our reactions. Once I start noticing myself slipping into misery, I can end it right there! I do it by seeing all the love already present in my life. I do it by seeing all the abundance of things to be grateful for in my life. Once I get back to feeling good about myself again, more things will start to appear in my life.”
Jason Micheal Ratliff
