As always, a busy week calls for some quotes. Here are some quotes that resonated with me this week.

"In public, avoid talking often and excessively about your accomplishments and dangers, for however much you enjoy recounting your dangers, it's not so pleasant for others to hear about your affairs."

"I've found that feeling frustrated that nothing is working is usually when the biggest breakthroughs are born."
Mark Manson

"We can remove most sins if we have a witness standing by as we are about to go wrong. The soul should have someone it can respect, by whose example it can make its inner sanctum more inviolable. Happy is the person who can improve others, not only while present, but even when in their thoughts."

"Whenever someone has done wrong by you, immediately consider what notion of good or evil they had in doing it. For when you see that, you'll feel compassion instead of astonishment or rage. For you may yourself have the same notions of good and evil, or similar ones, in which case you'll make an allowance for what they've done. But if you no longer hold the same notions, you'll be more readily gracious for their error."
Marcus Aurelius

"We judge others by the same standards which we judge ourselves. If we judge ourselves by how much money we make, we will judge others by how much money they make. The values we've adopted for ourselves are the same values we project onto others."
Mark Manson

"Above all, it is necessary for a person to have a true self-estimate, for we commonly think we can do more than we really can"

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate"
James Clear

"Progress often doesn't feel like progress.

Trying and failing is progress. Wrong ideas before finding the right one is progress. Arguing over important issues is progress. Realizing you're wrong is progress. Apologizing is progress. Cutting off toxic relationships is progress."
Mark Manson

"The things that we understand create Silence. The things that we do not create Emotion."
Kapil Gupta

"The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior"
Ramit Sethi
