There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And 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, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles

Everything you can imagine is real. –Pablo Picasso

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always. –Mahatma Gandhi

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'! –Audrey Hepburn

Whatever you are, be a good one. –Abraham Lincoln
