“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”    (Aristotle)




“The Voice
There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
‘I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you — just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.’”    (Shel Silverstein)




“There is no coincidence, and nothing happens ‘by accident.’  Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are.  All that is required is to know this.  For you are the creator of your own reality, and life can show up in no other way for you than the way in which you think it will.”   (Conversations with God, An Uncommon Dialogue by Neal Walsch)




“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated.  In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”   (Maya Angelou)




“You have power over your mind – not outside events.
Realize this, and you will find strength.”   (Marcus Aurelius, Meditations)




“He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”   (Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera)




“Trust yourself.   You know more than you think you do.”   (Benjamin Spock)




“[Dean] “My dear fellow, who will let you?”
[Roark] “That’s not the point.  The point is, who will stop me?”   (Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead)
