We can be sure that the greatest hope for maintaining equilibrium in the face of any situation rests within ourselves.
Francis J. Braceland, O Magazine, April 2003
“It’s a lot of balance and a lot of really hard decision making.”
“There’s no secret when it comes to juggling career and motherhood. At the end of the day, I just throw my feet up on the couch and say, ‘God, that was a long day! But somehow it all worked.’ There are days when everyone is fussy, fighting and late. Gracie has long hair, and sometimes it’s such a fight to brush it in the morning and get her ready for school. But I think about the days when she’ll be too big and tall. She won’t ever let me brush her hair then, so I enjoy the little moments now even though they’re not perfect.”
"We have overstretched our personal boundaries
and forgotten that true happiness comes from
living an authentic life fueled with a
sense of purpose and balance."
Dr. Kathleen Hall, from A Life in Balance
"It is balance; we need it. The sad part is
that some people pay more attention to their credit than
they do to their own balance in life!"
Catherine Pulsifer, from A Credit Check on Your Balance
"Our lives are a mixture of different roles.
Most of us are doing the best we can to find whatever the right balance is . . .
For me, that balance is family, work, and service."

"Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance you must keep moving."
"Balance in your life between work and your personal life is very important. Without balance, you eventually burnout negatively affecting your performance at work."
Byron & Catherine Pulsifer, from What Are the Benefits to Me?
"We need to maintain a proper balance in our life by allocating the time we have. There are occasions where saying no is the best time management practice there is."
Catherine Pulsifer, from We Never Seem to Have Enough Time
"Most of us are trying to balance work, home, and a family life. We tend not to accept the early symptoms of burnout and carry on our daily lives."
Yasmeen Abdur-Rahman, from Recognize the Early Signs of Burnout
I've learned that you can't have everything and do everything at the same time.
Oprah Winfrey (1954 - ), O Magazine, April 2003
So divinely is the world organized that every one of us, in our place and time, is in balance with everything else.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
Order is not pressure which is imposed on society from without, but an equilibrium which is set up from within.
Jose Ortega y Gasset (1883 - 1955)
The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.
Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC)
