“Shine Your Little Heart Out”

“In the short run, there are two types of people who live in darkness:  those who are desperate to emerge and those who are desperate to stay.

When you finally realize that part of the reason you chose this lifetime was to shine your light for the first type, you’ll stop worrying about what the second type thinks of you.  Shine your little heart out.   (signed)     The Universe”   (Notes from the Universe, Tom Dooley, 5.23.14)



“Three of the four most important lessons I ever learned in life came from my stepdad:

  • The only person you can count on in life is yourself.
  • You can’t be happy with someone else until you’re happy with yourself.
  • Don’t lie and don’t break your word.

*Note:  The fourth lesson came from my Aunt Jen, who taught me, ‘If you’re interested in a girl, always meet her mom because all girls end up eventually turning into their moms, with no exceptions.’”    (Bill Simmons)



“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”   (Oprah Winfrey)



“I’ll repeat something you might consider tattooing on your forehead:  What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”    (Tim Ferriss)



“While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.”   (Henry C. Link)

(Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Piglet)
