"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."

   "To see a world in a grain of sand
  And a heaven in a wild flower,
  Hold infinity in the palm of   your hand
  And eternity in an hour."
  - William Blake


He who binds himself to a joy
Doth the winged life destroy.
He who kisses the joy as it flies,
Lives in eternity's sunrise.
 - William Blake

"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world."

“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky”


“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”


“Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.”
