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

Your life will never be the same again.

If I were to wish for anything,
I should not wish for wealth and power,

Learn as if you were to live forever.

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,

Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

- Edward R. Murrow

The world moves, and ideas that were
once good are not always good.
