They simply mean there's a light somewhere nearby.
-Ruth E. Renkee
"It's all about soul. It's all about knowing what someone is feeling."

"Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness,
how we see ourselves and how we see our relationships with others."

"You create your own universe as you go along."
"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."
"We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing.

I wouldn't know. But I am sure it is the antithesis of self- consciousness."

Beyond the raw talent. You need the appropriate training. You need the discipline.
You need the inspiration. You need the drive."

inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion."
"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled [poets] to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."
Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical.
Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul.
Humans have the remarkable ability to get exactly what they must have.
But there is a difference between a "must" and "want."
“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”

“Really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“Most folks are about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself.
Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.”
“Success is a welcomed gift for the uninhibited mind.”
“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”
“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.”
~Henry David Thoreau
Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure
as long as you have done your best.
Keep your face to the Sunshine and you will not see the Shadows.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.
Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves
come when life seems most challenging.
