Pay attention to people who don’t clap when you win.
If your ego barks then my attitude roars.
I don’t want the world’s attention. Yours is enough. Good morning.
Karma functions through certain tendencies. But with some awareness and focus, you can push it in a different direction.
Karma says, if you focus on hurt, you will continue to suffer. If you focus on the lesson, you will continue to grow.
Consider intentions carefully. Karma gives a damn about ego, awards allegiance to none, and its justice is truly blind.
Whether or not we believe in survival of consciousness after death, reincarnation, and karma, it has very serious implications for our behavior.
A man’s ego is the fountainhead of human progress.
Happiness is that state of consciousness which proceeds from the achievement of one’s values.
My first big mission for UNICEF in Ethiopia was just to attract attention, before it was too late, to conditions which threatened the whole country. My role was to inform the world, to make sure that the people of Ethiopia were not forgotten.
I believe India and Israel should focus on building bilateral relations on the basis of shared perspectives and commonalities between our two democracies.
What do I mean by concentration? I mean focusing totally on the business at hand and commanding your body to do exactly what you want it to do.
Every good citizen makes his country’s honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defense and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.
If you wish to educate a child who has gone wrong, then you must, above all, keep your attention fixed on the intersection of two charmed circles.
My favorite goals are the ones when there’s so much pressure. I focus more when the game is on the line.
Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement.
The planet is in distress and all of the attention is on Paris Hilton.
Beauty gets the attention, personality gets the heart.
Focus on aesthetics. Size matters, but symmetry is more important.
I think sometimes when you want attention you can wear sunglasses and people are like “Who is that?”
