Quotes from Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there’.
There are two ways of being unhappy. Not getting what you want is one. Getting what you want is the other.
Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.
Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.
The past has no power over the present moment.
The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.
Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
