Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me...
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.
When the power of love
overcomes the love of power
the world will know peace.
Once in a while
you get shown the light
in the strangest of places
if you look at it right.
Robert Hunter in "Scarlet Begonias"
In strange ways hard to know gods come to men.
Many a thing past hope they have fulfilled,
And what was looked for went another way.
A path we never thought to tread the gods found for us.
Every time history
the price goes up.
And every one of those words rang true
and glowed like burnin' coals...
All of old. Nothing else ever.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
Selfishness is the root of all evil,
and caring is the greatest good.
What you've given you still have
and what you've saved you've lost.
If you want OTHERS to be happy, practice compassion.
If YOU want to be happy, practice compassion.
The Dalai Lama
If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.
One of the most calming and
powerful actions you can do
to intervene in a stormy world
is to stand up and show your soul.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
