For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.
George Orwell

Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Denis De Rougamont

Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Henry Miller

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
Brendan Francis

One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.
Albert Einstein

Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
Clark Moustakas

Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, bring you an inner peace and tranquillity -- instead of anger and resentment
Anonymous

Ah, when to the heart of man was it ever less than a treason to go with the drift of things to yield with a grace to reason and bow and accept at the end of a love or a season.
Robert Frost

Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with.
Robert Frost
