The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually be afraid you will make one. ~Elbert Hubbard

I believe that you're great, that there's something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there's something that is within you, there's power within you, that's greater than the world. It will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you. It will clothe you. It will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence, if you let it. Now, that is what I know for sure. ~Michael Beckwith

It's a bizarre but wonderful feeling, to arrive dead center of a target you didn't even know you were aiming for. ~Lois McMaster Bujold

We found it was ourselves. ~Robert Frost

Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt, choose the heart. This does not mean to deny your own experiences and that which you have empirically learned through the years. It means to trust yourself to integrate intuition and experience. There is a balance, a harmony to be nurtured, between the head and the heart. When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favored. ~Brian Weiss

The temple bell stops but the sound keeps coming out of the flowers. ~Matsuo Basho

Your hand and your mouth agreed many years ago that, as far as chocolate is concerned, there is no need to involve your brain. ~Dave Barry
