"In the same way, we become masters of jealousy, masters of sadness, masters of self-rejection. All of our drama and suffering is by practice. We make an agreement with ourselves and we practice that agreement until it becomes a whole mastery. The way we think, the way we feel and the way we act become so routine that we no longer need to put our attention on what we are doing. It is just by action-reaction that we become a certain way."
-- Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love
