Quotes that I like

I couldn't think of a more creative name for this thread so I kept it simple. I love coming across quotes that make me feel good or make me think about a situation in a different light. I have a "little book of confidence" that I used to carry in my handbag for when i needed it and I have a few other little books with quotes that I reflect on now and then

I thought it would be good to share some and encourage others to do the same.

For starters I have:

If you want to know someone's mind, listen to their words. If you want to know their heart, watch their actions.

People are not addicted to alcohol or drugs, they are addicted to escaping reality.

This is such a great idea, that quote really hit a nerve for me. Makes me wonder with such a heavy drinking culture in the ADF, is that a lot of people trying to escape reality?

(Background - I had a chat with psychiatrist today and were obviously discussion things. I could accept things that happened but I could also justify what happened. And this justification, can also be seen as agreement. What my psychiatrist said to me was...)

 

Acceptance doesn't equal agreement.
