People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.

—John Maxwell

We conceptualize vulnerability in positive terms and perceive openness to the possibility of being emotionally hurt as a powerful position to take in life. Living a relatively undefended, vulnerable life implies a self-acceptance, inner strength, and the capacity to deal with uncertainty.

— Robert Firestone, Beyond Death Anxiety

For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.

Re: Quotable Quotes - Part 1

As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has - or ever will have - something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression. ~ Fred Rogers


"True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it. It is arduous and it is rare." ~ G.K. Chesterton

"Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly." ~ G. K. Chesterton


"What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people." ~ Philip Zimbardo

“You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.”

Rumi

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." ~ Elizabeth Kubler Ross

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely acknowledge the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." ~ Maya Angelou

"Mistakes are a natural part of life. We learn by experimenting; mistakes and failure can be important parts of our learning process. Einstein flunked grade-school mathematics. Edison tried over 9,000 kinds of filaments before he found one that would work in a light bulb. Walt Disney went bankrupt five times before he built Disneyland. If we accept setbacks, we can continue to risk, learn, and move on with excitement and satisfaction." ~ California Task Force to Promote Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility

"There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don’t help them by doing the job yourself." ~ Laurell K. Hamilton

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." ~ Winston Churchill

"The past has no power over the present moment." ~ Eckhart Tolle
