Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.  Saint Francis de Sales

…everywhere I look I see myself.  There I go: that bald man, this angry child, that fearful cat, that cool stone, that bubbling brook, that worm struggling for its life, that bird desperate to feed her hungry babies, that one trapped in his rage, this one anxious but fearful of finding out why.  Hardly strangers!  Empathy is the life of the soul, I think, because the soul that allows us to see the one in the other is the soul that finds joy.  Claudia Michele

Compassion…is an understanding of the unity of all things.  It is an awareness that I is not separate from thou, that whatever is happening to the planet, or to another person, is happening to me.  Compassion is total empathy, an absolute sense of connection.  Paul Rezendes

“She had always lived her best life in dreams. She knew no greater pleasure than that moment of passage into the other place, when her limbs grew warm and heavy and the sparkling darkness behind her lids became ordered and doors opened; when conscious thought grew owl’s wings and talons and became other than conscious.”
John Crowley

“There’s a difference between fear and paralysis. And I’ve learned that I don’t have to “grow up” to be open to opportunity, to be willing to step through doors without being pushed. I just have to be brave. I just have to be slightly braver than I am scared.”
Victoria Schwab
