I have had a lot of good things happen, but I've also had a lot of terrible things happen. ~ Ralph Lauren
Good Things Happen quotes by Ralph Lauren
I know the answer to the question now, by the way: why bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. It came from my inner editor, the part of me that forces the wordy writer in me to dump ninety percent of all modifiers: Ask both questions again, minus the adjectives.
"Why do things happen to people?"
Just because. ~ Chris Crutcher
Good Things Happen quotes by Chris Crutcher
We make our worlds of stranger stuff: We choose people who do not annoy us, places of green or glass and steel that feel as alive and necessary as our brothers and sisters, houses in which everything has a place, rules such as Do Not Take Things That Aren't Yours Unless No One Is Looking and Good Things Happen to Good People and A Year Is 365 Days are agreed upon, even when they aren't true, perhaps especially so. ~ Catherynne M Valente
Good Things Happen quotes by Catherynne M Valente
Bad things happen to good people and Good things happen to bad people..that's just how life is. Yet ... A Great person is the one that will overcome it all! ~ Timothy Pina
Good Things Happen quotes by Timothy Pina
I find that whenever I am in power, or my father was in power, somehow good things happen. The economy picks up, we have good rains, water comes, people have crops. I think the reason this happens is that we want to give love and we receive love. ~ Benazir Bhutto
Good Things Happen quotes by Benazir Bhutto
They're in their own world, where good things happen, a quarter mile and a million light years away. ~ Caroline Kepnes
Good Things Happen quotes by Caroline Kepnes
Good things happen when you go for it! ~ Alan Webb
Good Things Happen quotes by Alan Webb
I do know it's great to have a support from a fan base of a team. Football is such a team game, such a team aspect to it ... Good things happen, the praise is spread around; and bad things happen, usually it's not just one person's fault. ~ Andrew Luck
Good Things Happen quotes by Andrew Luck
[When anything happens, we interpret it as good or bad, but ... ] We do not know what is really good or bad fortune. [Only the future can decide. For example, what appears to be bad today may in fact lead us to a greater good tomorrow and by the very act of thinking and planning in that positive way, we can help make that good future come true.] ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Good Things Happen quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I believe that the Laws of Karma do not apply to show business, where good things happen to bad people on a fairly regular basis. ~ Chuck Lorre
Good Things Happen quotes by Chuck Lorre
Our collective experience has shown that when women have the power to make their own choices, good things happen. ~ Madeleine Albright
Good Things Happen quotes by Madeleine Albright
When good things happen in the moment of happiness a ball of light will appear. It's not known what it is. What is certain though is that it is a sign of happiness. And if one could obtain it they could grant a single wish... -Yukine Miyazawa After Story ep. 8 ~ Key
Good Things Happen quotes by Key
Good things happen to a team when a player takes the place where he adds the most value. Great things happen when all the players on the team take the role that maximizes their strengths - their talent, skill, and experience. ~ John C. Maxwell
Good Things Happen quotes by John C. Maxwell
The only crying shame about it is, when good things happen to you, you run short of time. It takes the same amount of time, however, to tell people, 'It's good to see you again. I'm sorry we only have a minute to talk,' as it does to say, 'I don't have time to talk with you' period. ~ Barbara Mandrell
Good Things Happen quotes by Barbara Mandrell
Inspiration comes from within yourself. One has to be positive. When you're positive, good things happen. ~ Deep Roy
Good Things Happen quotes by Deep Roy
In general, I think the world is a good place if you work hard, believe in yourself, have good intentions, and if you are kind to people, I believe that good things happen to you. ~ Rachel Platten
Good Things Happen quotes by Rachel Platten
Good can still exist when bad things happen, just as evil persists when good things happen. - Carter to Georgina ~ Richelle Mead
Good Things Happen quotes by Richelle Mead
I don't have time to celebrate accomplishments. When good things happen, it's great, and obviously I get excited inside. But soon I gotta do something else; I gotta keep doing more stuff. The whole world will never be familiar, so I'm constantly going to be on a quest to get familiar. ~ Clinton Sparks
Good Things Happen quotes by Clinton Sparks
When you think small and up the middle, good things happen. ~ Alex Rodriguez
Good Things Happen quotes by Alex Rodriguez
If I am only happy for myself, many fewer chances for happiness. If I am happy when good things happen to other people, billions more chances to be happy! ~ Dalai Lama XIV
Good Things Happen quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile. ~ Helen Mirren
Good Things Happen quotes by Helen Mirren
Bad things happen for something, good things happen because we deserve them ~ Felipe
Good Things Happen quotes by Felipe
His years on earth had taught him that good things happen to those who honor the kindheartedness of others. ~ Imbolo Mbue
Good Things Happen quotes by Imbolo Mbue
Gratitude is not only a response to God in good times - it's ultimately the very will of God in hard times. Gratitude isn't only a celebration when good things happen. It's a declaration that God is good no matter what happens. ~ Ann Voskamp
Good Things Happen quotes by Ann Voskamp
I don't want to sit around and hope good things happen. I want to make them happen. ~ Drew Barrymore
Good Things Happen quotes by Drew Barrymore
You have to hope that [good things] happen to you. [ ... ] That's the only thing we really, surely have, is hope. You hope that you can be alive, that things will happen to you that you'll actually witness, that you'll participate in. Rather than life just rolling over you, and you wake up and it's Thursday, and what happened to Monday? Whatever the best part of my life has been, has been as a result of that remembering. ~ Bill Murray
Good Things Happen quotes by Bill Murray
Good things happen to those who wait. It's the waiting that takes the longest. ~ Shellie Palmer
Good Things Happen quotes by Shellie Palmer
Start before you're ready. Good things happen when we start before we're ready. ~ Steven Pressfield
Good Things Happen quotes by Steven Pressfield
In terms of professionally what I want to do, I want to play 15-plus more years, get to the Hall of Fame, and win a lot of championships and all that. I'd love to be the owner of a team one day. But it's way bigger than that. For me, my vision is how can I affect somebody positively every day? When you focus on other people, somehow good things happen to you. I think that's my goal. That's my vision. ~ Russell Wilson
Good Things Happen quotes by Russell Wilson
Most good things happen with time; especially music, which needs time to breathe and to find its own way. ~ Greg Ginn
Good Things Happen quotes by Greg Ginn
Oh sure, I have lots of fears. My job is to conquer my fears. The irony of being a performer is that I have huge insecurities. Each of us is responsible for what happens in our lives. When good things happen, we take ownership, but when bad things happen we often don't take responsibility. There are no mistakes or accidents. Consciousness is everything and all things begin with a thought. We are responsible for our own fate. We reap what we sow, we get what we give and we pull in what we put out. ~ Madonna Ciccone
Good Things Happen quotes by Madonna Ciccone
In later life most good things happen very slowly; only bad things tend to happen fast. ~ Mark Edmundson
Good Things Happen quotes by Mark Edmundson
I hope you feel better about yourself. I hope you feel alive. I hope that good things happen to you, and I hope that when the inevitable bad things happen you can handle them and learn a lesson and move on. I hope you know you're not alone and I hope you spend plenty of time with your family and/or friends and I hope you write more and get a seven-figure book deal. I hope next year no more celebrities die and I hope you get an iPhone if you want one. Or maybe a pony. I hope someone writes a song for you on Valentines Day that's a bit like Hey There Delilah, and I hope they have a good singing voice, or at least one better than mine. I hope that you accept yourself the way you are, and figure out that losing 20 pounds isn't going to magically make you love yourself. I hope you read a lot. I hope you don't have to almost die to figure out how valuable life is. I hope you find the perfect nail polish/digital camera/home/life partner. I hope you stop being jealous of others. I hope you feel good, about yourself and the people around you and the world. I hope you eat heaps of salt and vinegar chips because they're the best kind. I hope you accomplish all your hopes & dreams & aspirations and are blissfully happy & get married to Edward Cullen/George Clooney/Megan Fox/Angelina Jolie (delete whichever are inappropriate) & ride a pretty white horse into the sunset & I hope it's all sweet and wonderful because you deserve it because you did well this year in the fa ~ Steph Bowe
Good Things Happen quotes by Steph Bowe
Good things happen when you get your priorities straight. ~ Scott Caan
Good Things Happen quotes by Scott Caan
When you believe in something and you are a good person, good things happen. ~ Junior Dos Santos
Good Things Happen quotes by Junior Dos Santos
How about if (...) pious people all lived longer than non-pious people? How about when a plane crashes, only the pious people survive? How about Jesus comes when people say he will come? How about people pray for peace, and then all wars in the world stop permanently? How about good things happen excluesively to good people and bad things happen exclusively to bad people? How about an earthquake strikes Lisbon on All Saints Day, while everyone is in Church, as it did in 175, and it kills only people who are not in Church, rather than the tens of thousands of people who were, as what actually happened that fateful morning. These events would trigger serious (scientific) conversation about the existence of God and how he treats people who worship him versus those who do not. ~ Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Good Things Happen quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Well now I know I can control my tongue, my temper & my appetites, but that's it. I have no effect on weather, traffic or luck. I can't make good things happen; I can't keep anybody safe; I can't influence the future & I can't fix up the past. What a relief!
from book A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas ~ Abigail Thomas
Good Things Happen quotes by Abigail Thomas
Whatever you do to gain success, you have to hang in there and hope good things happen. Always think positive. ~ Don Rickles
Good Things Happen quotes by Don Rickles
I think good things happen to good people. ~ Buddy Valastro
Good Things Happen quotes by Buddy Valastro
Some people are like a thermometer. If their environment is negative, they are negative. If bad things happen, they are sad. If good things happen, they are happy. They are simply a product of their environment. Successful people, on the other hand, are more like a thermostat. Even if their environment is negative, they choose to be positive. ~ Cameron C. Taylor
Good Things Happen quotes by Cameron C. Taylor
If you put enough smart people together in one space, good things happen. ~ Erik Hersman
Good Things Happen quotes by Erik Hersman
I learned something recently: our true friends are those are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with the sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives. When things were bad last year, various people I had never ever seen before turned up to 'console' me. I hate that. ~ Paulo Coelho
Good Things Happen quotes by Paulo Coelho
God isn't about making good things happen to you, or bad things happen to you. He's all about you making choices
exercising the gift of free will. God wants you to have good things and a good life, but He won't gift wrap them for you. You have to choose the actions that lead you to that life. ~ Jim Butcher
Good Things Happen quotes by Jim Butcher
While we wait for good things to happen for ourselves, we can do good things for other people. ~ David Rangel
Good Things Happen quotes by David Rangel
Life is simple. Make good decisions and good things happen. Make bad decisions and bad things happen. ~ Dick Vitale
Good Things Happen quotes by Dick Vitale
We show up. We do our best. Good things happen. ~ Steven Pressfield
Good Things Happen quotes by Steven Pressfield
Don't make excuses; rather, find support and resources to make good things happen for yourself, your family, your businesses, your community, and the world you live in. ~ Anna Stevens
Good Things Happen quotes by Anna Stevens
... what kind of life do we live if we let fear break us down? The truth is there will be tough times, we've certainly been through them before; but good things happen everyday. Great things. We just have to open our eyes and see them. ~ Christene Houston
Good Things Happen quotes by Christene Houston
Remember, good things happen. ~ Jojo Moyes
Good Things Happen quotes by Jojo Moyes
No matter how bad things get, eventually the sun is going to shine. If you just keep at it, pursuing your goals, eventually good things happen to decent people. For a person who is set on his goals, good things will happen. Everyone deals with adversity, it's how you bounce back from it. ~ Daniel Cormier
Good Things Happen quotes by Daniel Cormier
Good films are not made by accident, nor is good photography. You can have good things happen, on occasion, by accident that can be applied at that moment in a film, but your craft isn't structured around such things, except in beer commercials. ~ Gordon Willis
Good Things Happen quotes by Gordon Willis
More recently, studies by social scientists have emphasized that most people in modern Western society go through life with strong positive beliefs that the world is basically a nice place in which to live, that life is mostly fair, and that they are good people who deserve to have good things happen to them. Moreover, these beliefs are a valuable aid to happy, healthy functioning. But suffering and victimization undermine these beliefs and make it hard to go on living happily or effectively in society. Indeed, the direct and practical effects of some trauma or crime are often relatively minor, whereas the psychological effects go on indefinitely. The body may recover from rape or robbery rather quickly, but the psychological scars can last for many years. A characteristic of these scars is that the victims lose faith in their basic beliefs about the world as fair and benevolent or even in themselves as good people. Thus, evil strikes at people's fundamental beliefs. ~ Roy F. Baumeister
Good Things Happen quotes by Roy F. Baumeister
Happiness is a road seldom traveled by the multitudes. If you find it, please, don't take it for granted. If you Happen to stray from it, don't let negative obstacles overcome you. Anger and rage only detour you from your final objectives. The future holds nothing but opportunity, and good things happen to good people I promise ~ Jeff Hardy
Good Things Happen quotes by Jeff Hardy
The world seems to want us to be sad and angry because bad things frequently happen. But I say we should feel the opposite. We should be happy and cheerful because good things happen. We should be delighted to see the sun rise and stars glow and rainbows color stormy skies. We should savor every simple breath and eat each meal with gratitude. We should slumber in sweet dreams and relish moments of laughter and love. We should take more notice of the joys and kindnesses that do exist, still dictating the actions of millions of good people all over the world. Life is filled with pleasant moments, not just grief. We should be happy because this is true. ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
Good Things Happen quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
(SEE GOD) ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
Good Things Happen quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
You need to say and do the right things and good things happen to good people. ~ David Ragan
Good Things Happen quotes by David Ragan
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don't wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope. ~ Barack Obama
Good Things Happen quotes by Barack Obama
But you can't escape from shadows or pain. You only find new ones. It's better, I think, not to try to escape them at all but to accept that they will be there, and to remember that good things happen, too, even if you can't always see them. ~ Christina Henry
Good Things Happen quotes by Christina Henry
Good things happen to good people. ~ Jojo Moyes
Good Things Happen quotes by Jojo Moyes
If people are going to keep a journal, they should do it when they're little, where all the good things happen, before life starts kicking you in the ass and in the head and every other places. ~ Beatrice Sparks
Good Things Happen quotes by Beatrice Sparks
The truth of life is that every year we get farther away from the essence that is born within us. We get shouldered with burdens, some of them good, some of them not so good. Things happen to us. Loved ones die. People get in wrecks and get crippled. People lose their way, for one reason or another. It's not hard to do, in this world of crazy mazes. Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You don't know its happening until one day you feel you've lost something but you're not sure what it is. It's like smiling at a pretty girl and she calls you 'sir'. It just happens. ~ Robert McCammon
Good Things Happen quotes by Robert McCammon
Laugh when good things happen. Laugh when bad things happen. Laugh when life is so plain boring that you can't find anything amusing about it beyond the fact that it's so utterly unamusing. ~ Brandon Sanderson
Good Things Happen quotes by Brandon Sanderson
When you work hard, good things happen ~ Allen Iverson
Good Things Happen quotes by Allen Iverson
Life is messy and the universe has an awful lot of people to keep track of. Sometimes things get screwed up. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes good things happen to bad people.
That isn't fair.
Bad things should happen to bad people.
And they will. They will. ~ Amy Zhang
Good Things Happen quotes by Amy Zhang
Good Things Happen to Big-Thinking People A tourist walked down a pier and watched a fisherman pull in a large fish, measure it, and throw it back. He caught a second fish, smaller this time, he measured it, and put it in his basket. Oddly, all fish over 10 inches, he discarded. The smaller ones, he kept. Someone asked him, "why?" The fisherman said, "Because my frying pan only measures 10 inches." Is that foolish? Of course it is, but it's no more so than when we throw away the biggest ideas and most beautiful dreams that come into your mind simply because your experience is too limited. Start growing now. Start thinking. Big things happen to big-thinking people. You can become the team you want to be. It's possible. Every man must make his contribution. ~ Peter G. Tormey
Good Things Happen quotes by Peter G. Tormey
Life isn't always unfair, Mariana. Lots of bad shit happens, but good things happen, too, and you need to be able to recognize the good when it comes along. You need to be able to accept it and deal with it, same as you deal with the bad. Love is as real as hate. You know how to survive. But that's not the same as living. ~ J.T. Geissinger
Good Things Happen quotes by J.T. Geissinger
Success, happiness, peace of mind and fulfillment - the most priceless of human treasures - are available to all among us, without exception, who make things happen - who make "good" things happen - in the world around them. Joe Klock ~ Deena B. Chopra
Good Things Happen quotes by Deena B. Chopra
Cooking professionally is a dominant act, at all times about control. Eating well, on the other hand, is about submission. It's about giving up all vestiges of control, about entrusting
your fate entirely to someone else. It's about turning off the mean, manipulative, calculating, and shrewd person inside you, and slipping heedlessly into a new experience as if it were a
warm bath. It's about shutting down the radar and letting good things happen. Let it happen to you. ~ Anthony Bourdain
Good Things Happen quotes by Anthony Bourdain
Good things happen when you meet strangers. ~ Yo-Yo Ma
Good Things Happen quotes by Yo-Yo Ma
There's actually a term for this - "hedonic adaptation." When good things happen, we bake them very quickly into our baseline expectations, ~ Dan Harris
Good Things Happen quotes by Dan Harris
Appreciate your surroundings and be grateful for it and that's when good things happen. ~ Conor McGregor
Good Things Happen quotes by Conor McGregor
In business as in life, sometimes bad things happen to good people, and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But over time, if you play long enough, everybody gets what he deserves.. good and bad. ~ Jeffrey R. Immelt
Good Things Happen quotes by Jeffrey R. Immelt
Life Is Fair I am sure you have heard the question "Why do bad things happen to good people?", but bad things happen to both good people and bad people equally. Good things happen to happy people. ~ Vivian Amis
Good Things Happen quotes by Vivian Amis
Good things don't happen to "good people"; good things happen to happy people. ~ Vivian Amis
Good Things Happen quotes by Vivian Amis
The stories teach them valuable life lessons. That good things happen to bad people. That it's possible to make a bad situation even worse if you don't think it through. That parents are clueless except when they're not. That it's good to try new things even when a new thing is kind of disgusting, because new experiences make you a well-rounded person. That art can be transcendent. That lust is all-powerful, that drugs are fun, and that not everyone who does them is a loser. That losing people is part of life. That where comedy goes, tragedy isn't far behind. That everyone has issues with their bodies, but some take it too far, almost to death. That fear can be exhilarating. That boys are assholes. That it's important to look forward and never look back ... ~ Megan McCafferty
Good Things Happen quotes by Megan McCafferty
But I believe good things happen everyday. I believe good things happen even when bad things happen. And I believe on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad. And that's life, isn't it? ~ Gabrielle Zevin
Good Things Happen quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
Sometimes you have to Let people blame you. When the only other option is letting bad things happen, it doesn't matter what people think. ~ Cassandra Clare
Good Things Happen quotes by Cassandra Clare
The types of climbing that I choose to do I'm good at justifying. I do really try and pick things that I'm going to live through. I don't want to die, and I'm relatively cautious. I play with that line all the time. I want things that are very exciting, so much so that they can feel almost spiritual. ~ Tommy Caldwell
Good Things Happen quotes by Tommy Caldwell
Things happen or they don't happen, that's all. Nothing is accomplished by sweat and struggle. Nearly everything which we call life is just insomnia, an agony because we've lost the habit of falling asleep. We don't know how to let go. We're like a Jack-in-the-box perched on top of a spring and the more we struggle the harder it is to get back in the box. ~ Henry Miller
Good Things Happen quotes by Henry Miller
First commandment: there ain't no such thing as "one true way" and the way you find is only good for you, not anybody else, because your interpretation of what you see and feel and understand as the truth is never going to be the same as anyone else's.
Second commandment: the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself.
Third commandment: leave the world better than you found it.
Fourth commandment: if it isn't true, going to do some good, or spread a little love around, don't say it, do it, or think it.
Fifth commandment: there are only three things worth living for; love in all it's manifestations, freedom, and the chance to keep humanity going a little while longer. They're the same things worth dying for. And if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race. ~ Mercedes Lackey
Good Things Happen quotes by Mercedes Lackey
Each of us starts out as a watertight vessel. And these things happen - these people leave us, or don't love us, or don't get us, or we don't get them, and we lose and fail and hurt one another. And the vessel starts to crack open in places. And I mean, yeah, once the vessel cracks open, the end becomes inevitable ~ John Green
Good Things Happen quotes by John Green
In mythology, the Medusa can petrify people with a look - which is a good thing, I think. But the Medusa is a unique symbol - something strong. It's about going all the way. ~ Donatella Versace
Good Things Happen quotes by Donatella Versace
Lord, I pour out my heart before You regarding the things in my life that cause me grief. I lift my hands to You because I know You are my hope and Your compassion for me never fails. Heal me of all emotional pain, and use the sorrow I have suffered for good. I pray that in Your presence I will find total restoration. ~ Stormie O'martian
Good Things Happen quotes by Stormie O'martian
Embrace and love all of yourself - past, present, and future. Forgive yourself quickly and as often as necessary. Encourage yourself. Tell yourself good things about yourself. ~ Melody Beattie
Good Things Happen quotes by Melody Beattie
The reason the middle class had it so good was because they expected things to be better. They wouldn't settle for less than they were worth. They'd just get into their shiny cars and go where they were appreciated. Poor people, on the other hand, were used to just taking what was given to them and being grateful for it. ~ Karin Slaughter
Good Things Happen quotes by Karin Slaughter
Mostly what you lose with time, in memory, is the specificity of things, their exact sequence. It all runs together, becomes a watery soup. Portmanteau days, imploded years. Like a bad actor, memory always goes for effect, abjuring motivation, consistency, good sense. ~ James Sallis
Good Things Happen quotes by James Sallis
Materialism, attachment to things of the world, includes pride. Many religious people suffer from pride: taking pleasure or even delight in being good, or religious. ~ Idries Shah
Good Things Happen quotes by Idries Shah
But I have never had the privilege of unhappiness in Happy Valley. California is about the good life. So a bad life there seems so much worse than a bad life anywhere else. Quality is an obsession there - good food, good wine, good movies, music, weather, cars. Those sound like the right things to shoot for, but the never-ending quality quest is a lot of pressure when you're uncertain and disorganized and, not least, broker than broke. Some afternoons a person just wants to rent Die Hard, close the curtains, and have Cheerios for lunch. ~ Sarah Vowell
Good Things Happen quotes by Sarah Vowell
If you do a full-on workout and then eat McDonald's or Wendy's, you're defeating the purpose. If you put good things into your body while working out, you'll see results. ~ Matt Kemp
Good Things Happen quotes by Matt Kemp
You can drive in your imaginations to make a tour to your future, visit it and see all kinds of good things hiding in there. But you have to take bold actions before you can truly relocate into what you see! ~ Israelmore Ayivor
Good Things Happen quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
It's so easy in life for us to receive blessings, many of them almost uncounted, and have things happen in our lives that can help change our lives, improve our lives, and bring the Spirit into our lives. But we sometimes take them for granted. How grateful we should be for the blessings that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into our hearts and souls. I would remind all of you that if we're ever going to show gratitude properly to our Heavenly Father, we should do it with all of our heart, might, mind, and strength-because it was He who gave us life and breath ~ David B. Haight
Good Things Happen quotes by David B. Haight
You know, things kind of happen organically and, you know, Broadway sort of happened out of a career in performing and - which happened out of practicing piano when I was a kid. ~ Harry Connick, Jr.
Good Things Happen quotes by Harry Connick, Jr.
There is no good trying to be more spiritual than God. God never meant man to purely spiritual creature. That is why He uses material things like bread and wine to put the new life into us. We may think this rather crude and unspiritual. God does not: He invented eating. He likes matter. He invented it. ~ C.S. Lewis
Good Things Happen quotes by C.S. Lewis
The essential Not-self could be perceived very clearly in things and in living
creatures on the hither side of good and evil. In human beings it was visible only when they were in
repose, their minds untroubled, their bodies motionless. ~ Aldous Huxley
Good Things Happen quotes by Aldous Huxley
Whatever you focus on is your reality.

You tend to move in the direction of what you're focused on--especially when it's bad. I remember when I was about nine years old, staying with my grandma and grandpa at the lake, I was playing with my cousins at this construction site. Not the safest place to play, which I suppose is what attracted me to it. I saw a two-by-four with a nail sticking out of it, and I remember running and thinking, Oh man, wouldn't it be terrible if I fell on that? A few moments later, it actually happened. I tripped and the nail went straight through my knee. I ended up going to the hospital with a two-by-four stuck to my knee because we were afraid to pull it out. The nail was about a centimeter away from cutting a vital tendon that would have required major surgery. So I was really fortunate in that regard. But I couldn't help thinking that my focus on this nail created the situation. I've learned since then that we all have the power to create our own destiny. On some level, we ask for things that happen to us in our lives. You have to know what you want, then be aware of the thoughts you hold in your mind. Negative ones--fear, anger, jealousy, frustration--will undermine you. If you see the nail tripping you up, it will. ~ Derek Hough
Good Things Happen quotes by Derek Hough
I'm usually more concerned with how things sound than how they look on the page. Some people write for the page, and that's a whole other thing. I'm going for what it sounds like right away, so it may not even look good on the page. ~ Tom Waits
Good Things Happen quotes by Tom Waits
I blame God for all the good things that happened in my life to spite him I will be good to others ~ Rassool Jibraeel Snyman
Good Things Happen quotes by Rassool Jibraeel Snyman
Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out. I will do at least two things I don't want to do ~ William James
Good Things Happen quotes by William James
To buy books would be a good thing if we also could buy the time to read them
l ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
Good Things Happen quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
I am not. I am certain of the things that matter. Kindness and honor are always good. Do not build God in your own image, with your doubts and fears, your need to judge and condemn, your need for safety, and to be right whatever the cost to others, and ultimately to yourself. Let your soul be still, and know that God is never capricious, never cruel and never wrong. It is our understanding that stumbles. Even the cleverest of us are yet children, and the wisest of us know that. ~ Anne Perry
Good Things Happen quotes by Anne Perry
