–Jonathan b. Joseph, Tal­mud: Sota, 22a

This one real­ly speaks to me in light of our declut­ter­ing process—physical and emotional:
What­ev­er is not yours, aban­don it. When you have aban­doned it, that will lead to your wel­fare and happiness.
–Bud­dha, “Con­nect­ed Dis­cours­es of the Buddha”

Among a man’s many good possessions,
A good com­mand of speech has no equal. 
Pros­per­i­ty and ruin issue from the pow­er of the tongue.
There­fore, guard your­self against thought­less speech.
–Tirukkur­al 65: 641–642

As a crys­tal reflects objects that are nearby, 
So does the face reflect what is fore­most in the heart.
What is more per­cep­tive than the face? For whether the heart
Is angry or glad, it is the face that express­es it first.
–Tirukkur­al 71:706–707
