Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.

We put it on, we go out, put our

But behind that social mask is a personal truth,

about who we are and what we're capable of.
- Phil McGraw

A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences,
in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures -
and that is the basis of all human morality.

Having a personal opinion is great.
Believing that one's personal opinion is absolute truth

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

is ultimately a personal one.

when I walked out of Bible school,

Then a voice answers "Nothing personal,
your name just happened to come up. -

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

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

I am the owner of my choices.
I am the source for the perspectives I choose to hold...

I will look into that mirror little bits at a time.
SEE and ACT. SEE what I can bear to see and ACT upon what I am able.
This is the heart of a gentle invitation to personal responsibility.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Pity may represent little more
than the impersonal concern
which prompts the mailing of a check,

which demands the giving of one's soul.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Purity of personal life is the one indispensable condition
for building up a sound education.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

We should take care not to make the intellect our god;
it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.

Zen says that if you drop knowledge -
and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,
because this has been given to you by others -

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.
- Osho
