Who you want to be ?

I saw this today via Positive Thoughts and thought it was great!

What we are contributes much more to our happiness than what we have. . . .
What we are in ourselves, what accompanies us when we are alone, what no one can give us or take away, is obviously more essential to us than everything we have in the way of possessions, or even what we may be in the eyes of the world.

Arthur Schopenhauer

We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them.
Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious,
depends one's ultimate interpretation of facts.
Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible
about one's subjective principals.
As we are, so will be our ultimate truth.

Carl Jung

Material possessions will rust away, wear away, or depreciate,
but your inner resources--character--must never depreciate.
In seeking success you must also seek fulfillment.
Ask yourself not only what you want to be, but who you want to be.

Elizabeth Dole
