One must still

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

For Our Mothers...

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
- Anonymous

I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
- Abraham Lincoln

Mothers have as powerful an influence over the welfare of future generations as all other earthly causes combined.
- John S.C. Abbott

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
- Sophia Loren

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men – from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Brenda Ueland- Listening is a magnetic...

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force...When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand. Ideas actually begin to grow within us and come to life...When we listen to people there is an alternating current, and this recharges us so that we never get tired of each other...and it is this little creative fountain inside us that begins to spring and cast up new thoughts and unexpected laughter and wisdom. ...Well, it is when people really listen to us, with quiet facinated attention, that the little fountain begins to work again, to accelerate in the most surprising way.

Jan Ashford: There is no such thing as can't

'There is no such thing as can't, only wont. If you're qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes. But you can't blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.'

A. Powell Davies - Religion is not something...

Religion is not something separate and apart from ordinary life. It is life -- life of every kind viewed from the standpoint of meaning and purpose: life lived in the fuller awareness of its human quality and spiritual significance.

Hamilton Wright Mabie - Motherhood

“The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best.”

Anthony Robbins - Live life fully...

Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
