Cool Quotes

Here are a few good ones that jibe with our philosophy of life.

“In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential that we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted.”- Carl Jung

“Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What human beings can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization.”- Abraham Maslow

"The pleasant life is wrapped up in the successful pursuit of the positive feelings, supplemented by the skills of amplifying these emotions. The good life, in contrast, is not about maximizing positive emotion, but is a life wrapped up in successfully using using signature strengths to obtain aubndant and authentic gratification.

I do not believe that you should devote overly much effort to correcting your weaknesses. Rather, I believe that the highest success in living and the deepest emotional satisfaction comes from building and using your signature strengths."- Martin Seligman

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who are alive."- Gil Bailie
