Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it. - Michael J. Fox

My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations. - Michael J. Fox. 
Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. – William James

Happiness can exist only in acceptance. – George Orwell

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

–Reinhold Niebuhr
