„Are you aware of your inner signals? Do you trust them? Do you have the focus of control over your life in your own hands? Take this from me, the more decisions you can make avoiding external pressures, which will constantly try to manipulate and immobilise you, the better your life will be, the better your society will become. The entire nation will benifit from having strong, inner-directed people as their leaders.“

„Do you ever consciously try to sense your gut feeling by asking yourself, ‘What do I feel about this person, situation or decision?’ Trusting your gut can help you in the workplace and beyond. The danger is when you let external noise drown out what it’s telling you, letting other people’s views and opinions take priority over your own.“

„Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso spiritual leader of Tibet 1935

Nobel lecture (1989)
Kontext: Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility. In that state of mind you can deal with situations with calmness and reason, while keeping your inner happiness. That is very important. Without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed or unhappy because of circumstances.

„External sanctions against the regime do not suffice. You have to bring into your calculation … an element of pressure from within… And the only way [to] do that is by strengthening the hand of the people inside the country.“

—  Reza Pahlavi Last crown prince of the former Imperial State of Iran 1960

„Are you going to be just kind of a walking monument to a job, or are you going to have some kind of really significant inner life of your own? Because the external things — the job, the house, the this, the that — do not really fill the place inside.“

„No matter what you do in your life, don’t you ever let anybody take your creative people away from you.“

—  Lady Gaga American singer, songwriter, and actress 1986

Kontext: Grace Jones said this to me when I met her. I washed her feet, and I looked up at her and she said, "No matter what you do in your life, don’t you ever let anybody take your creative people away from you." And what my creative friends always remind me of is they say, "Only value the opinion of those that you respect. And anyone that you don’t respect, pay no mind to their opinion about you or anything else." And that’s how I live my life. If I worried about everything that everyone said, I would not be a good artist.
