Victim Quotes
Inspirational Quotes about Victim

May you find great value in these inspirational Victim Quotes from my large datebase of inspiring quotes and sayings.

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

and slave of his action.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.

the misery which lies upon the world.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,

here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

No one is to be called an enemy,

A wise one said, "We are most like God when we forgive."
It is easy for us to blame, but hard for us to forgive.

is your own happiness.
Unconditional universal forgiveness is
the key to your own happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

He consists only of one quality: witnessing.

As the witnessing deepens,
you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.
Anger is an instinctive response.
We respond to an affront with anger essentially instantaneously -
much too quickly for conscious thought to be called upon.
But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Don't aim at success.
The more you aim at it and make it a target,
the more you are going to miss it.
For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued;
it must ensue, and it only does so as
the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication
to a cause greater than oneself.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected
in a cosmic religion for the future:

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

This is the heart of a gentle invitation to personal responsibility.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

for building up a sound education.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

than the one you are capable of living.
- Nelson Mandela

Anger is a killing thing:
it kills the man who angers,
