- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it

Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends. Czech Proverb

Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think. Chinese Proverb

If I think I can't, I can't
If I think I can, I can

When we step out from the light of all we have known into the darkness of the unknown, one of two things will happen. We will either have something solid to stand on, or we will be given wings and taught to fly.

In order to journey to new worlds, we must first be willing to lose site of the shore.

It is better that I am me, rather than who you want me to be.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure...
Thank you for that quote. My therapist has that one on the wall where her clients almost have to see it when they enter and leave the office. I've never really thought about it before, but that quotation is particularly appropriate for us.

I would add this one - I forget the source:

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.


To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive. - Robert Louis Stevenson

That was my highschool class motto and it seems like my life's motto as well.

Thanks for putting that one up here!

I have no idea what a real good translation would be, but one of Antigone's replies to Creon in Sophocles' play "Antigone" has stuck with me all my life.

-- Not to join in hating, but to join in loving, I was born.

There's a quote from Dr. King that I used as my sig here for awhile.

--"(T)he end we seek is a society that can live with its conscience."

That one always has seemed so fitting here.



"Telemachos, your guest is no discredit to you. I wasted no time in stringing the bow, and I did not miss the mark. My strength is yet unbroken…"—The Odyssey, translated by W.H.D. Rouse
