motionless, and the center of the universe.

They knew that it was a mortal sin to marry
someone of a different skin color.

you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.

It is much more painful to have lost
something you thought you had,

We are disappointed and we are angry;

Living Into the Great Paradox,
I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life serves up.
I work to bring about my vision of the future,
which is based on my value system of what is right,
just, noble, compassionate, generous, humane, peaceful, and loving.
Simultaneously, I accept that my vision
is based on only my opinions and prejudices,
and I honor all points of view and value systems,
no matter how different from my own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I want to share with you the three rules
that I have in order to accept an apprentice.
Rule Number 1: Don't believe me.
I don't want you to believe me
but I want you to listen and make choices - your choices.
If what I say, doesn't work for you, leave it.
But if it works for you and that's what you want, then make it yours.
Rule Number 2: Don't believe yourself.
Why? Because most of your belief system is a lie - it's not true.
And by believing yourself, you create all the limitations
that don't allow you to be what you really are.
Don't believe yourself. Listen to what you say,
listen to what you think, listen to what you believe.
And when you listen, open your ears, open your mind,
open your intelligence and make choices.
Rule 3 is, don't believe anybody else.
Don't believe them at all.
Open your ears and your mind; listen and make choices.
- don Miguel Ruiz

is the natural drive of the body to heal itself -

is only an expedient to enslave man
to the machine and make him like it.
- Frank Lloyd Wright

The future belongs to those
who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Whatever you do, you need courage.
Whatever course you decide upon,
there is always someone to tell you
that you are wrong.
There are always difficulties arising
that tempt you to believe your critics are right.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.
- The Buddha

Those who believe they can do something
and those who believe they can't
are both right.
- Henry Ford

A wise girl kisses but doesn't love,
listens but doesn't believe,
and leaves before she is left.

Because we believe that our ethnic group,
our society, our political party, our God,
is better than your God, we kill each other.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

- Marilyn Monroe

Have faith that your steps are

in the struggle ought not to deter us
from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

stronger than you seem,

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
