“Become the Light and Share It; Listen to the Sound of Your Heart”


“No mirror ever became iron again;

No bread ever became wheat;

No ripened grape ever became sour fruit.

Mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse.

Become the light.”           (Rumi)



“For what it’s worth, it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be.  There’s no time limit.  Start whenever you want, you can change or stay the same.  There are no rules to this thing.  We can make the best or the worst of it.  I hope you make the best of it.  I hope you see things that startle.  I hope you feel things you never felt before.  I hope you meet people with a different point of view.  I hope you live a life you’re proud of.  If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”      (‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’)



“There comes a time in every life when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart.  So you’d better learn to know the sound of it.  Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.”      (Just Listen by Sarah Dessen)



“When you are afraid of anything, you are acknowledging its power to hurt you.  Remember that where your heart is, there is treasure also.  You believe in what you value.  If you are afraid, you are valuing wrongly.”       (Meditations from A Course in Miracles by Barnes and Noble)



“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.   Happiness never decreases by being shared.”         (Buddha)
