Our Deepest Wishes

“Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves.
We must learn to respect them.
We must learn to listen.”

Sarah Ban Breathnach

Small Changes

“Small changes can have large effects in a system. So it is better to make small, realistic, humble, and therefore feasible plans.”

Peter Szabo/Daniel Meier

Becoming a Butterfly

“How does one become a butterfly?” she asked pensively. “You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”

Trina Paulus


“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”


The Melancholy of Change

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”

Anatole France


“He who cannot change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality”

Anwar Sadat


“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’.”
