|Dog Days Dog Training|
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. -- Buddha
"Things change moment to moment, things are impermanent. We worry over the past, we anticipate the future, and we barely perceive a shred of the passing moment."
"Practicing patience is going to bring you long-term benefits. Therefore you should greet the opportunity with great happiness."
"Without inner peace, it is impossible to have world peace."
"One of the most effective ways to overcome anxiety is to try to shift the focus of attention away from self and toward others."
"Material progress and a higher standard of living bring us greater comfort and health, but do not lead to a transformation of the mind, which is the only thing capable of providing lasting peace. Profound happiness, unlike fleeting pleasures, is spiritual in nature. It depends on the happiness of others and it is based on love and affection."
The Dalai Lama
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
"If you believe you can or if you believe you can't...you're right!"
"The greatness of a Nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"
"Give a man a job he loves and he will never have to work again."
"You think that the goal is to be over there, and we say the goal is the journey over there; the goal is the fun you have along the way on your way to over there."
"You are the sky. Everything else - it's just the weather."
