Amazing 

The story of your life is the story of the long and brutal assault on your heart by the one who knows what you could be and fears it. ~ John Eldredge, Waking The Dead

There lurks, perhaps, in every human heart a desire of distinction, which inclines every man first to hope, and then to believe, that Nature has given him something peculiar to himself. ~Samuel Johnson

We are all such a waste of our potential, like three-way lamps using one-way bulbs. 

~Mignon McLaughlin

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 other people won’t 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 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

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. ~Anna Quindlen

The words you say to yourself create your self image. ~Rhonda Britten

People are crying up the rich and variegated plumage of the peacock, and he is himself blushing at the sight of his ugly feet.  ~Sa’Di

Our strongest gifts are usually those we are barely aware of possessing. They are a part of our God-given nature…and we are no more conscious of having them than we are of breathing. ~ Parker J. Palmer
