~ Hafsat Abiola

~ Henry David Thoreau

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
~ The Buddha

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning…
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease and risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
~John O’Donohue

~Aldo Leopold

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.

~ Katherine Dunham

I often say that I don't worry about the meaning of life - I can't handle that big stuff. What concerns me is the meaning in life - day by day, hour by hour, while I'm doing whatever it is that I do. What counts is not what I do, but how I think about myself while I'm doing it.
~ Robert Fulghum
