What is true is already so.
Owning up to it doesn't make it worse.
Not being open about it doesn't make it go away.
And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with.
Anything untrue isn't there to be lived.
People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.

—Eugene Gendlin

"I'll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing them to grow. Without change, something sleeps inside us and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken." --Duke Leto (The Just)

"If you focus on what you left behind. You will never be able to see what lies ahead. Now go up and look around." - Gusteau

"Saying that impermanence is a Buddhist belief is like saying that Buddhists believe water is wet." -Sakyong Mipham

A war with no battles, no monuments... only casualties.

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible." - Hyman G. Rickover

"The essence of balance is detachment. To embrace a cause, to grow fond or spiteful, is to lose one's balance, after which, no action can be trusted." - Keeper Proverb
