A Quote by Lao Tzu on awareness, darkness, discipline, emotion, life, energy, and practice

Don't think you can attain total awareness and whole enlightenment without proper discipline and practice. This is egomania. Appropriate rituals channel your emotions and life energy toward the light. Without the discipline to practice them, you will tumble constantly backward into darkness.

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

A Quote by Brian Tracy on automobiles, balance, emotion, feeling, goals, justice, and energy

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on emotion, identity, security, self-esteem, strength, and worth

Security represents your sense of worth, your identity, your emotional anchorage, your self-esteem, your basic personal strength or lack of it.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on balance, emotion, family, limitations, needs, principles, solution, and work

As a principle-centered person you try to stand apart from the emotion of the situation and from other factors that would act on you, and evaluate the options. Looking at the balanced whole--the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration. We are limited but we can push back the borders of our limitations.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on anger, cynicism, disappointment, disillusionment, emotion, feeling, meaning, people, quality, relationships, and resentment

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on balance, dependence, emotion, environment, health, individuality, life, and quality

The quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of the life of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell life-nor a biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.

A Quote by Winifred Gallagher on behavior, colors, emotion, and ideas

The idea of linking color and behavior is reasonable enough. Anyone who has ever felt blue, seen red, blacked out, or turned green knows we're prone to make emotional associations with different shades.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on emotion, feeling, poetry, spontaneity, and tranquility

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
