your potential is!
Anne Frank, diarist
We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we
can from it.
Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree
with you; until you have cultivated the habit of saying some kind word of
those whom you do not admire; until you have formed the habit of looking
for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither
successful nor happy.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so
often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed
door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

Henry David Thoreau
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear, anxiety and doubt
Breathe in then breathe out.
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 is not just in some of us; it is 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 fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the Universe,
a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts
and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical
delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few
persons nearest to
us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our
circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of
nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the
striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and
of a foundation for inner security.
Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself to others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
