~ EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE ~

Compiled by Peter Shepherd


“As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery... we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.” —Dalai Lama quote

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.” —Khalil Gibran

“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.” —Charlotte Brontë

“He who smiles rather than rages is always the stronger.” —Japanese proverb

“Maturity is achieved when a person postpones immediate pleasures for long-term values.” —Joshua L. Liebman

“Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident. Riches take wing. Only one thing endures. And that is character.” —Horace Greeley

emotional intelligence quote

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.” —Paul Boese

“Jealousy sees things always with magnifying glasses which make little things large, of dwarfs giants, of suspicions truths.” —Miguel de Cervantes

Out of the box

“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us —how we can take it, what we do with it —and that is what really counts in the end.” —Joseph Fort Newton

emotional intelligence quote

“We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt...” —Dorothy Day

“Any person capable of angering you becomes your master.” —Epictetus

“Because fear is insatiable, everything that is insatiable is born of fear.” —Alan Cohen

emotional intelligence quote

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.” —Audre Lorde

“Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance.” —Deepak Chopra

“We are dangerous when we are not conscious of our responsibility for how we behave, think, and feel.” —Marshall B. Rosenberg

emotional intelligence quote

“You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.” —Dale Carnegie

“Transformation occurs when existing solutions, assumed truths and past decisions are exposed as unrealistic and self-defeating.” —Peter Shepherd

“Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.” —Les Brown

“Experience is not what happens to you - it’s how you interpret what happens to you.” —Aldous Huxley

“With fear, possessiveness enters the picture, then jealousy rears its ugly head. Jealousy is the opposite of desiring life and freedom of choice for one’s partner.” —Peter Shepherd

“Never speak out of anger,
Never act out of fear,
Never choose from impatience,
But wait... and peace will appear.”

–Guy Finley

emotional intelligence quote

“Use pain as a stepping stone, not a camp ground.” —Alan Cohen

“When you make people angry, they act in accordance with their baser instincts, often violently and irrationally. When you inspire people, they act in accordance with their higher instincts, sensibly and rationally. Also, anger is transient, whereas inspiration sometimes has a life-long effect.” —Peace Pilgrim

“Persons of high self-esteem are not driven to make themselves superior to others; they do not seek to prove their value by measuring themselves against a comparative standard. Their joy is being who they are, not in being better than someone else.” —Nathaniel Branden

emotional intelligence quote

“Those who enter the gates of heaven are not beings who have no passions or who have curbed the passions, but those who have cultivated an understanding of them.” —William Blake

“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each man’s life a sorrow and a suffering enough to disarm all hostility.” —Henry Longfellow

“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may bet better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge now exists to make things better.” —King Whitney Jr.

emotional intelligence quote

“The sign of intelligent people is their ability to control emotions by the application of reason.” —Marya Mannes

“He who fears he will suffer, already suffers from his fear.” —Michel de Montaigne

“For it is not death or hardship that is a fearful thing, but the fear of death or hardship.” —Epictetus

“Whatever is begun in anger, ends in shame.” —Benjamin Franklin

“Our identity is very closely associated with our thoughts and feelings. Usually, when we feel anger, we become angry. We are anger itself. When we feel depressed, we are depression. When we feel greedy we are greed. It’s easy to see ourselves in the emotional ‘guise du jour’ and mistake this costume for who we really are beneath it.” —Marc Gilson

eq quote

“Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand... prejudice, fear and ignorance walk hand-in-hand.” —Peart
