THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“Whatever difficulty you face, there are time-tried ways you can listen your way through. Because listening is the doorway to everything that matters. It enlivens the heart the way breathing enlivens the lungs. We listen to awaken our heart. We do this to stay vital and alive.”
–Mark Nepo

“The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
–Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Never give up on yourself. Then you will never give up on others.
–Pema Chodron
