The Art of Power Quotes

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.
The Art of Power, Thich Nhat Hanh

It is my conviction that there is no way to peace – peace is the way.
The Art of Power, Thich Nhat Hanh

Many people think excitement is happiness…. But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.
The Art of Power, Thich Nhat Hanh

If you suffer and make your loved ones suffer, there is nothing that can justify your desire.
The Art of Power, Thich Nhat Hanh

To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. You can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment.
The Art of Power, Thich Nhat Hanh
