When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything in the Universe.

Meaning is not what you start with but what you end up with.
~ Peter Elbow
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Life is not the way it is supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.
~ Virginia Satir
It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.
~ Wendell Berry
Patience with others is Love. Patience with self is Hope. Patience with God is Faith.
~ Adel Bestavros
The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
~ Richard Bach
Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete. If you’re alive, it isn’t.
~ Richard Bach
You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. It is rewarding to find someone who you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things. For you cannot live in someone else. You cannot find yourself in someone else. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave nor lose. To the question of your life, you are the only answer. To the problems of your life, you are the only solution.
~ Jo Coudert
When you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird. The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it. The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous.
~ Henry Miller
Our goal is to discover that we have always been where we ought to be.
~ Aldous Huxley
Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt (those who cross the sea change the sky, not their spirits).
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
~ Albert Einstein
