Here's some inspiration I acquired today from this superb little gem of a book. These are quite fitting to many things I wrote about last night.
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be" Lao Tzu
"Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors" African proverb
"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." The Buddha
"If you want a deep, intimate relationship with another, first become aware of who you are" William Haugh
