Quotes by Doe Zantamata
"It's easy to judge. It's more difficult to understand. Understanding requires compassion, patience, and a willingness to believe that good hearts sometimes choose poor methods. Through judging, we separate. Through understanding, we grow."
"You cannot convince someone to see something that they do not want to see, no matter how much you know it would improve their lives. You have to love and accept them exactly as they are today. If you cannot do that, you have to let them go and find their own way, in their own time, if they ever choose to do so. Otherwise, you'll be giving them the power over your happiness, too."
"Your intuition is the most honest friend that you will ever have."
Your inner spark never dies.
Quiet your mind enough to feel it again.
Once you do, it will begin to ignite.
"Sometimes people confuse self-love with big ego. The two are totally different. A person with a big ego thinks they are better than others. A person who loves him or herself doesn't think they are better or worse than others. Comparing is useless, as we all have strengths and weaknesses. Focusing on one or the other is not the whole picture. If you love yourself, you know you are worthy of love, of good things in life, and that you are capable of unlimited great things. You will inspire others to realize the same about themselves as well."
