It’s not as simple as changing a tire.

"It’s not as simple as changing a tire. You can influence and support others in their transformation, but you can’t change them. If there is any learning that I wish had been sealed in my brain at a young age, it is this one. How much time we waste trying to change others, when the only one we can change is staring at us in the mirror."

Libraries are reservoirs of strength

“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.... In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed. ” ― Germaine Greer

The astonishing light of your own being.

"Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you. I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being." -Hafiz

Trees are great listeners.

"Trees are great teachers. The trees are great listeners. That is why we should meditate in their presence. The Great spirit is in every rock, every animal, every human being and in every tree. The Great Spirit has been in some trees for hundreds of years. Therefore, the trees have witnessed and heard much. The trees are the Elders of the Elders. Their spirits are strong and very healing." —Mary Hayes

Life is a dream

“My grandfather used to tell me that life was a dream. He also said that when people finally realized this, the dream could be changed, and then humanity would change.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

Sometimes there is simply no bridge left between two hearts

"Relationships are like bridges-we can build them up, or knock them down. People often assume that we sever connections because we are carrying a grudge. But that’s not always true. Sometimes there is simply no bridge left between the two hearts. We can try to re-build it, but that’s not always possible or desired. With our lessons learned, we move on to build a new bridge somewhere else. The hope is that the bridges we form get more stable and nourishing over time."
