A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on laughter, grateful, safe, soul, ecstasy, creative, desire, freedom, and opportunities

The Healthiest Response to life is Laughter.

There is always a reason to be grateful.

You belong in the scheme of the universe. There's nothing to be afraid of. You are Safe.

Your soul cherishes every aspect of your life.

There is a Plan, and your soul knows what it is.

Ecstasy is the energy of spirit. When life flows, ecstasy is natural.

There is a creative solution to every problem. Every possibility holds the promise of abundance.

Obstacles are Opportunities in disguise.

Evolution leads the way through desire.

Freedom is Letting Go.

Deepak Chopra

A Quote by Sigmund Freud on religion, desire, civilization, ethics, progress, reason, and superego

Our knowledge of the historical worth of certain religious doctrines increases our respect for them, but does not invalidate our proposal that they should cease to be put forward as the reasons for the precepts of civilization. On the contrary! Those historical residues have helped us to view religious teachings, as it were, as neurotic relics, and we may now argue that the time has probably come, as it does in an analytic treatment, for replacing the effects of repression by the results of the rational operation of the intellect.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on music, sweetness, desire, love, repetition, and orsinio

That strain again! It had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour! Enough; no more:
'Tis not so sweet as it was before.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on desire, sin, desires, satisfaction, certainty, virtue, and dilemma

I am no longer sure of anything. If I satiate my desires, I sin but I deliver myself from them; if I refuse to satisfy them, they infect the whole soul.

A Quote by Sumner M. Davenport on success, plan, desire, life, and commitment

"For most, their planning consists of setting the alarm clock to get out of bed to go to work;  others plan by daily To-Do lists and crisis management; Those with an unwavering commitment to a desire of greater success  will take the steps to plan their business and their life."

A Quote by Doug Lesser on yes, desire, mind, and heart


How do you say yes to yourself?

By allowing desire to be your compass and the wind that fills your sails and asking the mind to be the servant of the heart. In our culture we ask the heart to obey the mind, and it can't because it is something so vast the mind can't even comprehend it. Just let go, say Yes!
