"The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt."

“There is a line in Leonard Cohen’s song “Anthem” that serves as a reminder to me when I get to that place where I’m trying to control everything and make it perfect. That line is, “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” So many of us run around spackling all of the cracks, trying to make everything look just right. This line helps me remember the beauty of the cracks. It reminds me that our imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together. Imperfectly, but together.”

“The act of surrender doesn't mean we give up on the goal/dream/vision. Surrender = actively releasing the tension and resistance that keeps us knotted with anger, frustration and grief. Surrender that shit!”
