Don't take anyone's inventory but your own. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 21 October)

There is no need for me to accept blame for another person's irrational actions. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 4 October)

Self-inquiry puts you in touch with vital information about yourself which you have ignored, denied or may not be aware of. (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today! 26 July)

It is easy to fool oneself about motives, and admitting it is hard, but very beneficial. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 26 September)

Self-knowledge and self-improvement are very difficult for most people. It usually needs courage and long struggle. (Abraham Maslow, in Touchstones, 23 October)

... we can get unlimited benefits from changing our way of thinking. No realistic person would consider this an easy task; indeed there is nothing more difficult in life! (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 24 September)

Many situations can be clarified by the passing of time. (Theodore Isaac Rubin in Touchstones, 21 August)

Just for today, allow the little surprises of life to provide you with some more information that you need to know. (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today! 26 September)

... pass what you have learned on to someone you know who is not moving. (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today!, 19 August)
