“I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped.” Frederick Perls
“Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don’t over-analyse your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness.” Leo F. Buscaglia
“Oft expectation fails, and most oft where most it promises; and oft it hits where hope is coldest; and despair most sits” William Shakespeare
“The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.” Confucius
“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting a bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian” Dennis Wholey
“I am open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder my path.” Dalai Lama
“I would like to explain the meaning of compassion, which is often misunderstood. Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other: irrespective of whether another person is a close friend” Dalai Lama
“Keep high aspirations, moderate expectations, and small needs” William Howard Stein
