“Change and Learning”

“Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn’t original sin.  He’s born with the tragedy that he has to grow up.  A lot of people don’t have the courage to do that.” (Helen Hayes)



“Life is a series of choices and nobody can stop you from making your choices.  People punish themselves by making wrong choices.  Constantly, enlightenment is being offered to them, but they refuse to accept it.  Therefore, people are being taught by problems that are set before them, since they refuse to make right choices voluntarily.”    (Peace Pilgrim)



“Three things make people want to change.  One is that they hurt sufficiently.  They have beat their heads against the same wall so long that they decide they have had enough.  Another thing that makes people want to change is a slow type of despair called ennui, or boredom.  A third thing that makes people want to change is the sudden discovery that they can.”    (Thomas Harris)



“The moment you start moving in the direction of accomplishment, you will find that life will accommodate you.”     (Jack Addington)



 “I am still learning.”    

(Michelangelo’s motto)
