- Clarissa Pinkola Estes


To travel is to take a journey into yourself.
- Danny Kaye

- Wendell Berry


Being a candle is not easy; in order to give light one must burn first.
~ Rumi


Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
- Martin Luther King Jr.


We believe that God sees us from above
But He actually sees us from the inside.
