To be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all our lives - the good as well as the bad, the moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow, the success as well as the rejections - that requires hard spiritual work.

( Henri Nouwen, 1932 - 1966 )

The choice to follow love through to completion is the choice to seek completion within ourselves. The point at which we shut down on others is the point at which we shut down on life. We heal as we heal others, and we heal others by extending our perceptions past their weaknesses. Until we have seen someone's darkness, we don't really know who that person is. Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is. Forgiving others is the only way to forgive ourselves, and forgiveness is our greatest need.

( Marianne Williamson, 1952 -   )

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.

( Norman Vincent Peale 1898 - 1999 )
