There's a redemptive power that making a choice has. You know, rather than feeling like you
are at effect to all the things that are happening - make a choice! You just decide what it's
gonna be, who you gonna be, how you gonna do it. Just decide! And from that point the
universe is gonna get out of your way!
Will Smith

tell us that dragons can be beaten.

Miguel de Cervantes

To become learned, each day add something.
To become enlightened, each day drop something.
Lao Tzu

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 enlightening
about shrinking so that other people won't feel unsure around you. 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. 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

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Samuel Johnson

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering
their attitudes of mind.
William James

Nothing lasts forever, so live it up. Drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the bullshit. Take chances
and never have regrets because, at one point, everything you did was exactly what you
wanted.
Marilyn Monroe

We know our flaws - at least most of them. We constantly face our weakness and our
damage. It can cause us to doubt we will ever live an exceptional life. It isn't true. If history
is any guide, struggling manfully against our deformities is the beginning of greatness.
Stephen Mansfield
