The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. ~ Alice Walker
People with clenched fists can not shake hands. Indira Gandhi
“Connections are made slowly, sometimes they grow underground.”
~ Marge Piercy, quoted in “Something More” by Sarah Ban Breathnach
A crank is someone with a new idea – until it catches on ~ Mark Twain
Do what your fear tells you not to do
Don’t dwell on your mistakes, but do learn from them.
It’s better to ask questions than to know all the answers
There is more to life than increasing its speed – GANDHI
Optimism is the key to happiness
