“Between stimulus and response, there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
“And the wiser you get, the more you slow down your thinking, and the more conscious you become of your emotional triggers, the more you can expand that tiny little pause – that precious little space – in which to CHOOSE how to be. That’s where it’s at. Choosing instead of reacting.”
“One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?”
There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.
~Gilbert Keith Chesterton
