" When we surrender to God, we surrender to something bigger than ourselves - to a universe that knows what it's doing. When we stop trying to control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We're at rest while a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a much better job than we could have done. We learn to trust the power that holds galaxies together can handle the circumstances of our relatively little lives."

I found this today for you. I really liked it, despite it mentioning GOD in it which you may or may not appreciate its a great quote. It doesn't require any "religious" belief to believe in God or higher power., people can worship a tree in their yard if they want, its up to each of us to fing a Higher Power of our understanding. I hope you like this quote.
" You have to understand that you will never be able to control the way people feel or react to certain things; it's in their character. Yes, they can change their behaviors and their attitudes, but their character is who they are! Therefore, live life for you, live life like God would want you to, without worry, without fear, but with faith and perseverance! Live to make you happy! After all, you're the only one that can live your life!"
