“Believe; We Can Change Anything”


“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”   (Roald Dahl)



Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done.  God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.”   (John Andrew Holmes)



‘I Believe’

“I’ve been out walking for hours.

I’ve got something on my mind.

How did we get here? Where are we going?

And why is life so hard?

I read the stories, see the photographs.

World’s in a crazy space.

I’ve got to hold on to my dreams;

There’s just no other place.

There’s just no other place.


I believe

We can change anything.

I believe

We can rise above this.

I believe

There’s a reason for everything.

I believe

In my dream.

I’ve seen the shadows of the living.

Seen them turn and walk away.

And I keep searching for the right words

To send these thoughts away.

There’s a picture I like to look at,

A picture of a beautiful face.

And I see something in her eyes,

Sends me to a better place.

Sends me to a better place.


I believe

We can change anything.”   (‘I Believe’ song lyrics by Joe Satriani)



“Lord, take me where You want me to go;

Let me meet who You want me to meet;

Tell me what You want me to say, and

Keep me out of Your way.”   (Fr. Mychal Judge, OFM, New York City Chaplain who died in 9/11)



“’You’re dangerous,’ he says.


‘Because you make me believe in the impossible.’”   (Simone Elkeles, Rules of Attraction)



“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”   (Theodore Roosevelt)
