Let there be many windows to your soul,

Let there be many windows to your soul,
that all the glory of the world may beautify it.

To those who have looked on the sea.

All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.
We do not always win the race
By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 

It is easy enough to be pleasant
When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.
For the target art has a broad expanse,
And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

the smile that shines through tears.

With care, and skill, and cunning art,
She parried Time's malicious dart, And kept the years at bay,
Till passion entered in her heart and aged her in a day!

- Marilyn Monroe

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
- Raymond Lindquist

Don't let what you cannot do
interfere with what you can do.
- John Wooden

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, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
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.
It is not just in some of us; it is 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.
- Marianne Williamson

Don't be trapped by dogma -
which is living with the results of other people's thinking.

drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage
to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
- Steve Jobs

Success seems to be largely a matter
of hanging on after others have let go.

Push Your Buttons,
Get You Riled Up,
