Quote of the Day

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.
Thomas A. Edison
When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor E. Frankl
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
Max de Pree

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt

We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn't have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.
None but ourselves can free our minds.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
