most of us discover 
where we are headed

When I dare to be 
powerful—to use my 
strength in the service of 
my vision—then it becomes
less and less important
whether I am afraid.

Wake up. This is your life, for God's sake. 
It's time to face up to it. You can't get 
anywhere, can't get over anything,
if you don't let yourself feel
anything in the first place. It's time.

~ Julie Buxbaum

The most basic and powerful way 
to connect to another person 
is to listen. Just listen. 
Perhaps the most important thing 
we ever give each other is our attention.

Spending time with your own mind
is humbling and broadening. One finds
that there's no one in charge, and is 
reminded that no thought lasts for long.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, 
or acts to improve the lot of others, 
or strikes out against injustice, he sends 
forth a tiny ripple of hope...and crossing 
each other from a million different centers
of energy and daring, those ripples build a
current that can sweep down the mightiest
walls of oppression and resistance.

~ Robert F. Kennedy

Nothing we see or hear

In daily life we must see that
it is not happiness that makes
us grateful, but gratefulness

Happiness can be found in
even the darkest of times,
but only to those who remember

If you realize that 
all things change,
there is nothing

When obstacles arise, you change
your direction to reach your goal,
you do not change your
decision to get there.

Every day you may make progress.
Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will 
stretch out before you an ever-lengthening,
ever ascending, ever-improving path.
You know you will never get to the end
of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging,
only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.

~ Winston Churchill
