We are what we see. We are products of our surroundings.
If we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that sometimes our assumptions and preconceived notions are wrong, and therefore, our interpretation of events is incorrect. This causes us to overreact, to take things personally, or to judge people unfairly.
No one is the same, and we all have different life experiences. It’s not my place to judge them or for them to judge me. We should all be accountable for our own lives.

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.

Our lives improve only when we take chances – and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that.
We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.
The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities.
We would frequently be ashamed of our good deeds if people saw all of the motives that produced them.
Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.

God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities, great potential strength and ability. Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers.
It put our energies to sleep and made visionaries of us – dreamers and indolent… It is good to begin life poor; it is good to begin life rich – these are wholesome; but to begin it prospectively rich! The man who has not experienced it cannot imagine the curse of it.

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
I don’t see any of my colleagues as rivals. I don’t think our generation needs to do that. We are a chilled out lot, and we should all be happy.

The solar system should be viewed as our backyard, not as some sequence of destinations that we do one at a time.
