Byron Katie Quotes


Byron Katie

1 - 2 - 3



We don’t attach to people or to things; we attach to uninvestigated concepts that we believe to be true in the moment.
Byron Katie

Spare yourself from seeking love, approval, or appreciation—from anyone. And watch what happens in reality, just for fun.
Byron Katie


The Work is merely four questions; it’s not even a thing. It has no motive, no strings. It’s nothing without your answers. These four questions will join any program you’ve got ad enhance it. Any religion you have—they’ll enhance it. If you have no religion, they will bring you joy. And they’ll burn up anything that isn’t true for you. They’ll burn through to the reality that has always been waiting.
Byron Katie


The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want.
Byron Katie


If you want reality to be different than what it is, you might as well try to teach a cat to bark.
Byron Katie

I realized that it’s insane to oppose it. When I argue with reality, I lose—but only 100% of the time. How do I know that the wind should blow? It’s blowing!
Byron Katie


The Work reveals that what you think shouldn’t have happened should have happened. It should happened because it did, and no thinking in the world can change it. This doesn’t mean that you condone it or approve of it. It just means that you can see things without resistance and without the confusion of your inner struggle. No one wants their children to get sick, no one wants to be in a car accident; but when these things happen, how can it be helpful to mentally argue with them? We know better than to do that, yet we do it, because we don’t know how to stop.
Byron Katie


When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.
Byron Katie


I can find only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours and God’s. Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,” I am in your business. When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation.
Byron Katie


To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for me? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve problems for you.
Byron Katie


A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.
Byron Katie

No one has ever been able to control his thinking, although people may tell the story of how they have. I don’t let go of my thoughts—I meet them with understanding. Then they let go of me.
Byron Katie

Stories are the untested, uninvestigated theories that tell us what all these things mean. We don’t even realize that they’re just theories.
Byron Katie
