To start with Buddha: You can only lose what you cling to. So true, since we tend to keep things the same, even though change is often good and the world changes all the time. Clinging to stuff will not make us happier if we cannot find inner beauty and meaning in everything that life offers. 

Even if the change involves something bad or sad, it has a goal of teaching us to deal with setbacks and accept the downs along with the ups. After all, to reach the ups, we need to know the downs, too.

We should keep in mind that it is not about how many times we fall, but about how many times we stood up after that and prevailed. Time heals everything, from the trivial loss of belongings or business failures to the loss of the loved ones or betrayals. So you need to learn to let go, as holding on to past mistakes and pains will only hold you back and prevent you from changing for the better. Or, to put it the way Winston Churchill sees it: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

Feel Better at Work With a Quote to Keep You Company

Starting your workday with an inspiring citation can help you be more productive at your job. When you’ve moved away, it can be hard to think about work when you’ve left everything behind. But, as Lyndon B. Johnson said, “Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.” 

Probably the most popular and universal quote is attributed to Dan Fogelberg, an American musician, songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist: “Lessons learned are like bridges burned, you only need to cross them but once”, followed by: “Is the knowledge gained worth the price of the pain?” That should be our motto. But there is more than one valuable quote that can inspire us and lead as ahead.
