Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.

In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.

on their children rather than virtue,
the art of speaking well rather than doing well;
