Post your favorite quote. No arguing though. lets everyone play nice.

Mine is: The mind cannot cope directly with the complexity of the world. Rather we construct a simplified mental model of reality and work from this model.
-Herbert Simon

Life is Cheap - Me

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others wont feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Someone wise once told me that the key to loving ourselves is by doing the next right thing. If we continually do the next right thing (which if we ask ourselves, we usually know what the answer is) loving ourselves is a side-effect. So, I love this quote:

"...I took a long, deep breath and wondered as usual, where to start. You start where you are, is the secret of life. You do the next right thing you can see. Then the next." - Anne Lamott

"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life".
