“Our worst 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, and fabulous?” Actually, who
are you not to be? You are a child of God; your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure
around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in
some of us, it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give
other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson

“All that it takes to make a difference is the courage to stop proving I was right in being
unable to make a difference…to stop assigning the cause for my inability to the
circumstances outside myself and to be willing to have been that way, and to see that the
fear of being a failure is a lot less important than the unique opportunity that I have to
make a difference.”
– Warner Erhard

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never
was before and never will be again. And what do we teach our children in school? We
teach them that two plus two make four and that Paris is the capital of France. When
will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: do you know
what you are? You are a marvel! You are unique. In all of the world there is no other
child exactly like you – what a wonder it is! Your legs, your arms, your cunning fingers,
the way you move! You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, and Beethoven.
You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can
you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must cherish one another. You
must work, we must all work – to make this world worthy of its children.”
– Pablo Casals
