they merely determine where you start.

How far you go in life depends on your being
tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving, and
tolerant of the weak and strong.
Because someday in your life
you will have been all of these.

- George Washington Carver

We Belong to Earth

What befalls the earth befalls all the sons of the earth.
This we know: the earth does not belong to man,
man belongs to the earth.

All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.
Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

- Chief Seattle (1786-1866)

I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because, of all the things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.

Self Esteem

Well, we all know that self-esteem comes from
what you think of you,
not what other people think of you.

To understand the heart and mind of a person,
look not at what he has already achieved,
but at what he aspires to.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.

Olympic Idea

The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back.
That's real glory.
That's the essence of it.

Love Steps Forth

When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts,
the circle of Creation is completed inside us,
the doors of our souls fly open,
and love steps forth
to heal everything in sight.

Creating Your Future

The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created; created first in the mind and will, created next in activity.

The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination.

- John Schaar
