Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.
What we all want, really, is to be loved. That craving drives our worst behavior.
If you don't know what you want, you'll never find it. If you don't know what you deserve, you'll always settle for less. You will wander aimlessly, uncomfortably numb in your comfort zone, wondering how life has ended up here. Life starts now, live, love, laugh and let your light shine!
It’s never overreacting to ask for what you want and need.
One must work and dare if one really wants to live.
The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time.
Relinquishing selfish wants, one is free to allow others to travel their own paths under the will of God. (18)
Demanding and bargaining for your wants and desires may or may not work. But living in a place of trust and openhearted availability for what life shows you is a far more harmonious and whole-full life.
Life sometimes reminds us that it is sometimes heartless by giving something or someone we really need to someone who does not need or even want them or it.
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
The media represents world that is more real than reality that we can experience. People lose the ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy. They also begin to engage with the fantasy without realizing what it really is. They seek happiness and fulfilment through the simulacra of reality, e.g. media and avoid the contact/interaction with the real world.
Hope and faith goes hand-in-hand, because without hope there is no faith. The same goes with want and needs, without any wants, there no need to have a need
If I were to eliminate all of the things that I ‘want,’ I would be left with all of the things that I ‘need.’ And inevitably, such an action would leave me standing before God caught up in the stunning realization that in Him is everything that I ‘want’ and all that I ‘need.’ And how is it that I could not ‘need’ God and ‘want’ both?
You may not always get what you want but you'll always get what you need.
Most of our desires tend to reveal their pettiness a few months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, or even seconds, after they have been fulfilled.
To succeed in life, you need to create the experience that everyone wants, and needs.
The difference between ‘wanting’ something and ‘having’ something is ‘doing’ something.
And I am forty-nine and getting old and soon it will be too late for all the things I know nothing of but which torment me in the middle of the night and here now in this place which is supposed to be a comfort and a solace. I am lonely and hungry and I have never breathed a word of this to anyone. Nobody knows or cares. I don't want anyone to know or care.
Man wants three things; life, knowledge, and love.
Reality is at least a billion trillions times less malleable than our desires.
