Reactions come and go based on ever-changing circumstances.

Our misery or happiness depends on how we react to external events and internal thoughts. We judge and label everything based on our reactions. Sometimes our reactions are so strong that they destroy us. But the real problem is in not understanding that reactions themselves come and go based on ever-changing circumstances.

17th Karmapa
from the book “The Future Is Now: Timely Advice for Creating a Better World”
