Barbara De Angelis

  • We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.

  • Silence has a regenerative power of its own. It is always sacred. It always returns you home ...

  • It is easy to be mindless in America, because dreaming of and living for a better tomorrow is the American way. ... The problem is, in the second half of the twentieth century, we have gotten so good at living for tomorrow that most of us spend very little time in the present.

  • Happiness is not an acquisition — it is a skill. We do not experience happiness because of what we get. We experience happiness because of how we live each moment.

  • If you don't develop your skill at enjoying what you have, you won't be any happier when you get more.

  • Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.

  • It is inherent in human consciousness to improve. So there is nothing unique about a people searching for and creating ways to make their life better — all civilizations throughout history have done this. What is unique about us in America is the accelerated rate at which we continually search for novelty and progress.

  • All addictions have one thing in common — they numb you out to what is happening in the moment.

  • No one betrays us as much in our lives as we betray ourselves.

  • ... no job is a good job if it isn't good for you.

  • Love is the magician of the universe. It creates everything out of nothing.

  • Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.

  • When you live with constant gratitude, your life will become a living prayer.

  • When I look for happiness, I lose it. When I stop looking, and surrender to where I am, I find it.

  • Marriage is not a noun, it's a verb. It's not something you have, like a house or a car. It is not a piece of paper that proves you are husband and wife. Marriage is a behavior. It is a choice you make over and over again, reflected in the way you treat your partner every day.

  • ... in all codependent relationships, the rescuer needs the victim as much as the victim needs the rescuer.

  • It takes a lot of courage to be the same person on the outside that you are on the inside.

    • Barbara De Angelis,
    • in Katherine Martin, Women of Courage ()
  • One of the most courageous things we do is change. If everyone says you're wonderful every time you wear a red dress, and you change to yellow, that takes courage.

    • Barbara De Angelis,
    • in Katherine Martin, Women of Courage ()
  • ... when your field is architecture, you go visit the great cathedrals of the world. My field was relationships. I got married many times. I was practicing. I didn't date much; I just would get married. I thought, why waste time?

    • Barbara De Angelis,
    • in John Tullius and Elizabeth Engstrom et al., Word By Word ()
  • No one is in control of your happiness; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
