Happy Monday Quotes #8: Peace of Mind

Various life elements have been a bit in flux for me lately. Therefore, I thought an apt topic to explore through quotations would be “peace of mind,” which has been in short supply the past few weeks.


And thus, below are a few thoughts about that sometimes elusive concept.


“Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.” — Buddha


“Nothing external to you has any power over you.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson


“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart … live in the question.” — Rainer Maria Rilke (from Letters to a Young Poet)
