Steve Maraboli
“You have the ability to choose your reactions.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

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

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Thus the man who is responsive to artistic stimuli reacts to the reality of dreams as does the philosopher to the reality of existence; he observes closely, and he enjoys his observation: for it is out of these images that he interprets life, out of these processes that he trains himself for life.”
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. Feelings of anger can also be in response in situations where we would expect other emotions. I have noted that sadness may be expressed as anger.”
Tony Attwood

T.F. Hodge
“When spontaneous demoralizing thoughts seep into your conscience, don't trip...allowing them to fester. These are random tests of your conviction and determination. Large or small, your reaction to such intrusions is a defining moment for which no one else, but you, can mitigate.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

“Successfully functioning in a society with diverse values, traditions and lifestyles requires us to have a relationship to our own reactions rather than be captive of them. To resist our tendencies to make right or true, that which is nearly familiar, and wrong or false, that which is only strange.”
Robert Kegan

Jeremy Aldana
“If you are upset with another’s words towards you; be cautious of your reactions, for you are only meant to be a sounding-board for his soul”
Jeremy Aldana

Shannon L. Alder
“The only people that can't handle the truth are those that suffer so much anxiety that they will live in denial, in order to prevent their illusion from being destroyed and feeling more anxiety.”
Shannon L. Alder

Tamar Cohen
“Can an absence of action be construed as a negative action?”
Tamar Cohen, The Mistress's Revenge

Jeremy Aldana
“We question ourselves through others by way of stories, advice, and gestures; and we receive our answers form listening to others reactions”
Jeremy Aldana

Shannon L. Alder
“What you give meaning to is what causes your emotion. Before you react know why you are giving something so much energy or fear. When you begin to understand why you give things meaning you can begin to change how you react and why you do what you do.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“Never believe someone cares for you because of other people's reactions. Sometimes you have to drown out the noise from the crowd, in order to figure out if there is a song playing between the two of you or simply annoying static that you thought was a tune.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“The truth is this: People that give you focus, energy and anger do care. If you were nothing then you wouldn't be able to affect them. Behind every over reaction was first the thought that your opinion mattered and your respect was once of value or you wouldn't get the response you got.”
Shannon L. Alder

Maddy Malhotra
“In many situations, the only thing you can control is your own response. Changing self-talk from negative to positive is an excellent way to manage that response. Anger destroys your health and relationships.”
Maddy Malhotra, How to Build Self-Esteem and Be Confident: Overcome Fears, Break Habits, Be Successful and Happy

Mango Wodzak
“Certain actions bring harm, other more wizened actions bring harmony.”
Mango Wodzak, The Eden Fruitarian Guidebook

Shannon L. Alder
“Sometimes, it is easier for people to believe lies then deal with the uncomfortableness of their own fear of action. These type of people feel uncomfortable unless everyone is the same or God presents them with what is easy and obvious. It is a life long coping mechanism for the greatest fear of all--regret.”
Shannon L. Alder

Lance Conrad
“It is impossible to know the whole depth of someone’s character from a single moment, but seeing how they respond to the unexpected is a great start.”
Lance Conrad, The Price of Loyalty

“When the lights go off in a movie theatre, everyone becomes this one entity: the audience watching the film. And most films aim to get the same emotions out of people. The same reactions. To laugh or be scared or cry or be inspired. The audience goes in as individuals and comes out as people who’ve all experienced the same thing, are all feeling the same way.”
Kheryn Callender, This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story

“Road Rage is how a person reacts when they are unhappy within themselves. They look for suitable victims so that they can justify letting out their rage, and vent their frustrations.
It is never justified, and never should be.
Frustrations don't have a place on the motorway or on the street.
It's simple.
If you're angry....don't drive.
If you're frustrated with life....don't drive.
If you drive, chances are that you could hurt or kill other people, yourself or more importantly...those that you love.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Sometimes in life, accidents do happen; sometimes in life, certain incidents do occur. Certain accidents can be an incident and certain incident can be an accident. In all things, our ability to get a good understanding of what to regard as a true or mere incident, or an accident will truly help us to know how to handle situations in life in the best way, and with an utmost understanding for growth and satisfaction.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Remember, how people act and react has more to do with them, than with you. Sometimes, we may be shocked by how people act, or react. We might be put off or even offended. We have to remember we don't know what is in the minds and hearts of others. We don't know what trials they are facing. How they act or react may have absolutely nothing at all to do with us. We can't assume to take everything personally. Moreover, if we find ourselves reacting with volatile emotions, we may need to ask ourselves why we are being triggered. Just as it can happen with others, we also can fall victim to this. We may have a stronger than anticipated reaction to something because we have some unresolved conflict or pain that has been triggered. As we recognize what is within us, it becomes easier to recognize the same or similar within others. This in turn develops, understanding, compassion, kindness, forgiveness and a loving presence. Take a moment, a breath before you throw your emotions into something someone does or says. Take a moment, a breath before reacting or acting yourself. This can be the saving grace in your relationships with others.”
Akiroq Brost

“When we react negatively to others we are really speaking to an unresolved pain within ourselves.”
Akiroq Brost

Amanda Craig
“To thoughtful natures, events are like depth charges: the surface is calm, but the shock spreads further.”
Amanda Craig

“Mind your attention! Don’t just give it to any action and reaction at all!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Meditation trains our inner world. It is the art of creating a space between your breath and thoughts, a space that allows you to choose your own response. That allows us to overcome stimuli and reactions, so we can choose who we want to be, moment to moment.”
Natasha Potter

“If by studying Bhagavad-gītā one decides to surrender to Kṛṣṇa, he is immediately freed from all sinful reactions.”
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

“We must respect ourselves first before we can demand respect from others. We must uphold our own respect. We dictate how people are allowed to treat us by our own behavior, by our reactions and non-reactions.”
Akiroq Brost

“Are you going to anchor yourself to fear or love? Are you going to focus on what you can, or can't do? Where will you invest your time, attention, and energy? Even if we have circumstances in our lives which are trying and difficult, we still have a choice as to what we emotionally engage with. We must monitor what we allow into our lives. Does it serve us or harm us? Are we acting in our own best interest?”
Akiroq Brost
