A Quote by Sumner M. Davenport on gratitude, attitude, perspective, and choice

I believe that its not what happens to you or for you that makes you grateful, it's how you respond to what is happening, that shows your belief about gratitude.

A Quote by John Stuart Mill on freedom, liberty, health, choice, and personal choice

The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental or spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest.

John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

no matter where you find yourself in the universe,
your choice is always the same:
to expand your awareness or contract it.

A Quote by Kaya McLaren on place, geography, happiness, choice, cedars, cactus, environment, bloom, kaya mclaren, and church of the dog

There are people who say that you should be able to be happy wherever you are, and how happiness is completely a matter of choice. I don't buy that. Cacti don't grow in Alaska and cedar trees don't grow in Arizona. I don't pretend to know the laws of nature, but it's clear to me that some things do better in some places and other things do better in others. I don't see why people should be any different... I prefer not to have anyone blow sunshine up my ass about happiness being total choice.
