And no matter what, there's not one thing in this world or the next that we can do or hope or guess at or wish or pray that can change it or help it one iota. Because whatever is, is. That's all. And all there is now is to be ready for it, strong enough for it, whatever it may be. That's all. That's all that matters. It's all that matters because it's all that's possible. - James Agee. It matters immensely. The slightest sound matters. The most momentary rhythm matters. You can do as you please, yet everything matters. - Wallace Stevens. Not everything that counts can be counted. Not everything that can be counted counts. - Albert Einstein. In the end, what affects your life most deeply are things too simple to talk about. - Neil Blaine. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. 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. -Nelson Mandela. If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with whom to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be our purpose in life? it is other life, it is love which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth. - Mitsugi Saotone, Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. - Harriet Tubman. Often people attempt to live their lives backwards, they try to have more things, more money, in order to do more of the what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want. - Margaret Young, When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful. - Malala Yousafzai. Choose your corner, pick away at it carefully, intensely and to the best of your ability and that way you might change the world. - Charles Eames. Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big ones. - Robert Brault.
