When you love who you are, there is no thing unconquerable, no thing unreachable.


I exist, I am, I am here, I am becoming, I make my own life and no one else makes it for me. 
I must face my own shortcomings, mistakes, transgressions. 
No one can suffer my non-being as I do, but tomorrow is another day, and I must decide to leave my bed and live again. 
And if I fail, I don't have the comfort of blaming you or life or God.
Leo Buscaglia 

Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.

George Herbert

I am no bird; no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

Action is the single most effective antidote to depression, anxiety, stress, fear, wrong, guilt and of course, immobility. It is virtually impossible to be depressed and active at the same time.

Wayne Dyer

I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character.

Love yourself first and everything else falls into place.

Self-esteem is the result of the relationship that you have with yourself… the thoughts and attitudes you have to yourself.

But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.

What-ever you do, if you do it sincerely, it will eventually become a bridge to your wholeness, a good ship that carries you through the darkness.

Napoleon Bonaparte

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Some people have ideas. A few carry them into the world of action and make them happen. These are the innovators.

The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. 
If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. 
If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. 
If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.
Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
Abraham Lincoln

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
Maya Angelou

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two Impostors just the same; Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it.

Rudyard Kipling


If you don’t place your foot on the rope, you’ll never cross the chasm. Life is a risk. Change and chance are constants.
