“As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery... we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.

“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
