“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, 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.

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”

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

“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

Mango Wodzak

Mango Wodzak, The Eden Fruitarian Guidebook

“You have a choice to not add to the negativity. Remember, two negatives don't make a right.”
Akiroq Brost

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

“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

“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

“Do not rely on the outer world as your measuring stick for your own spiritual growth. Rely on your response to the outer world to determine how much you have grown.”

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

“We may not always be able to control what we are, but we can control what we do. Everyone has a dark side, but we have a choice not to act on it.”
Akiroq Brost

“You can't control your emotions, but you can control how you express them.”
Akiroq Brost

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

“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 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

Rachel Kushner, The Flamethrowers

“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
