"To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world; everyone you meet is your mirror." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"People who postpone happiness are like children who try chasing rainbows in an effort to find the pot of gold at the rainbow's end. ... Your life will never be fulfilled until you are happy here and now." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"Everything is a gift of the universe -- even joy, anger, jealously, frustration, or separateness. Everything is perfect either for our growth or our enjoyment." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"I have everything I need to enjoy my here and now -- unless I am letting my consciousness be dominated by demands and expectations based on the dead past or the imagined future." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"No one that ever lived has ever had enough power, prestige, or knowledge to overcome the basic condition of all life -- you win some and you lose some." - Ken Keyes, Jr.

"Everyone and everything around you is your teacher." - Ken Keyes, Jr.
