Re: Quotable Quotes 7

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

"From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life." ~ Anaïs Nin

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." ~ Anaïs Nin

"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." ~ Anaïs Nin
