but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

of feeling safe with a person;

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.

The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

To accuse oneself shows that one's education has begun.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

that knows not victory or defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Marriage is neither heaven nor hell,
it is simply purgatory.

on the tracks of history
to wait for the train of the future to run over him.
