The highest level of inner calm comes from the
development of love and compassion. 
The more concerned we are with the happiness of others, 
 the more we increase our own well-being.
Friendliness and warmth towards others allow us to relax and help us to dispel 
any sense of fear or insecurity so we can overcome whatever obstacles we face.
-Dalai Lama

“To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub.”  
― William Shakespeare

"Don't be afraid to suffer,
take your heaviness,
and give it back to the earth's own weight.
The mountains are heavy,
the oceans are heavy..."

(Excerpt from "Sonnets to Orpheus" 1922-1923.
