A Quote by Eugene C Oliveto, M.D.,P.C. on movement, contentment, peace, acceptance, love of self, and love of others

Love is not a thing. It is not something you do. Love is a way of being, a merging of body, mind and spirit. A state of total acceptance and freedom. Without limits, reservations or qualifications. It is a sense of wonder and oneness with all that exists in a universe that is self-sustaining, and a God who loves us.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on wisdom, contentment, and thankfullness

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on needs, anxiety, and contentment

But man has other needs as well: emotional needs. These, too, are few, but every bit as important as his physical requirements, yet not so simple. If they aren't met, they can be as devastating as physical hunger, as uncomfortable as a lack of shelter, as incapacitating as thirst. The frustration, isolation and anxiety brought about by unmet emotional needs can, like physical privation, produce death or a degree of living death - neurosis and psychosis.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on contentment, failure, fame, fulfillment, happiness, integrity, money, success, and world

Fame or integrity: which is more important? Money or happiness: which is more valuable? Success or failure: which is more destructive? If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Lance Armstrong on beginning, belief, bliss, contentment, experience, friendship, good, happiness, justice, life, suffering, and time

Suffering, I was beginning to think, was essential to a good life, and as inextricable from such a life as bliss. It's a great enhancer. It might last a minute, or a month, but eventually it subsides, and when it does, something else takes its place, and maybe that thing is a greater space. For happiness. Each time I encountered suffering, I believe that I grew, and further defined my capacities--not just my physical ones, but my interior ones as well, for contentment, friendship, or any other human experience.

A Quote by Heraclitus on character, choice, colors, contentment, day, destiny, guidance, integrity, principles, and soul

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way.

Heraclitus (c.540 - c.475 BC)
