or given away returns multiplied.

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

Some people move our souls to dance.
- Flavia Weedn

when some cherished scheme has failed,
to take up the best alternative open,
and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.

He who is devoid of the power to forgive
is devoid of the power to love.

When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

to avoid being consumed by urgency.
