"Life is not only stranger than we imagine…it is stranger than we can imagine…."
~ J.B.S. Haldane

~ Anais Nin
" Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others ."

Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural Speech
"The wish to be cured is part of the cure."
"Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty."
Albert Einstein
"When you are content to be simply
   yourself and don't compare or compete,
      everybody will respect you."

Lao Tsu
"Take all of your expertise and trade it in for wonder."
"The Past is history, the Future is a fantasy, the Moment is a gift. That is why we call it The Present." Are you appreciative and enjoying the Present of your life?"
"Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours."
Swedish Proverb
