Powerful Quotes

  • I can not offend you. Only you can offend yourself. This is how the brain works. I might be the catalyst, I say something, and you have thought about what I say, and that thought creates a feeling. If you’re training the culture of you can offend me, and I can offend you, then we are training them to be victims.

  • Making obvious decisions is not based on emotion but based on logic and trying to remove emotion.
