Blaming is giving the power over your own life to someone else. It makes you dependent. Blaming someone puts the keys to your own happiness in someone else’s pocket. If you can’t control others, but keep putting the keys to your happiness in other people’s pockets, then you can never be happy. Take back your keys! Put them back in your own pocket!

Matija Matty Biljeskovic

With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

Ayrton Senna

Fighting for peace is like shouting for silence; it just creates more of what you don’t want.
