A Daily Dose of Sanity

“There is a reward in helping someone else that runs far deeper than simply helping yourself.” - Alan Cohen

At Care2, we believe this is especially true. Helping people and animals in your community and beyond can be rewarding and enriching in so many ways.

Alan Cohen, author of more than 20 inspirational books, including his latest book A Daily Dose of Sanity, will be speaking at the November 2010 Celebrate Your Life Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. He will be joined by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Doreen Virtue, Neale Donald Walsch and many more illuminating presenters. In anticipation of the event, we are sharing some of our favorite quotes from Alan.

Leave a comment for a chance to win Alan’s new book A Daily Dose of Sanity.


“You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.”

“Think less about approaching death and more about approaching life.”


“Humility is born of the spirit, humiliation of the ego.”


“The recognition you seek from others is really the recognition you seek from yourself. Give it to yourself and you won’t need it from others.”


“Money is not the source of life. It is an expression, or by-product, of doing what brings you life.”


“You believe that a lover will bring you love, but it is your love that will bring you a lover.”


“Vacation is a state of mind, not an action.”

The STRONGEST tree in the forest is NOT the one that is PROTECTED from STORM and HIDDEN from the sun. It is the one that STANDS in the OPEN where it is compelled to STRUGGLE for its EXISTENCE against the winds, rains and the scorching heat of the sun. Be then THANKFUL when GOD makes us one of HIS STRONGEST TREES.

"...grow yourself instead of expecting some other people to do it for you. "
