it's who has that last decision.
- Trevor Nunn

What you're doing is putting into professional play

It has to do with listening, with humility and a sense of yourself.
- Trevor Nunn

in my town needed a kid actor.

with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

Is today a day to gather strength from the storm -

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Just stop it. Seriously.
Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.

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

People are just as happy
as they make up their minds to be.
- Abraham Lincoln

It is darkest just before the dawn.

And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.
And that's the price we'll have to pay
to achieve that goal, or any goal.

People should think things out fresh
and not just accept conventional terms
and the conventional way of doing things.

Improve what you can
and accept all the rest of life
just as it comes.
Know that fear is your worst enemy -
perhaps your only enemy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do.
Don't bother just to be better than
your contemporaries or predecessors.
Try to be better than yourself.

Think of your life as just begun.

just help enough other people get what they want.

it means that some angel's just got his wings.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
- Mother Teresa

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.

is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you.
