Ten additional quotes about battles
“Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look in a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.”
C. JoyBell C.
“I’ve come to realize that life is neither a battle nor a game to be won, it is a game nonetheless, but to be played… enjoyed. There are neither winners nor losers… just players–and what’s great is that you can choose who to play with”
“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.”
“No one is perfect in this world, and we all have our battles, but it’s the way we get back on our feet and turn it around that really counts.”
“Wise people choose battles carefully, the way a rat nibbles around a trap. What doesn’t kill you doesn’t always make you stronger. Sometimes, they leave you maimed, scarred, and lackluster.”
“Not everything that comes our way needs to be overpowered or won. At times we need to ignore many things and that’s what we call FOCUS. Choose your battles, wisely. Knowing when to play and when to sit on the sidelines…when to lead and when to follow…is called WISDOM – a key element for staying focused to reach your destination…your goal. We cannot stop noises around us, but we can close our ears to the noises.”
“It is the battles you choose to fight and win that determines how much you can accomplish and how far you can go in this life.”
“So many people get involved with carrying grudges and having these moral battles with people, where they cast themselves as the righteous and the other guy is the dirtbag. They waste tons of energy on it, create all kinds of darkness around themselves and the other person. It gets you nothing.”
Stephen J. Cannell
“Victory in physical battles requires strength, muscles, and skill; but the fight is never tougher and victory is never sweeter than in the battles over self.”
“Some people are fighting much, much more important battles and much bigger battles, and if we get the chance to put a smile on their face for ten seconds, it’s so worth it.”
