• "To be free, you have to have strong roots. To have roots, you must be free."
  • "God often comes to us disguised as our lives."
  • "I do not pray for Success, I pray for Faithfulness"-Mother Theresa
  • "Patience is a hard discipline. It is not just waiting until something happens, over which we have no control: the arrival of the bus, the end of the rain, the return of a friend, the resolution of a conflict. Patience is not a waiting passively until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient we try to get away from where we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later or somewhere else. Let's be patient & trust that the treasure we look for in hidden in the ground on which we stand."-Henri Nouwen
  • "To be a person who is about peace is to have Faith that tomorrow need not look like today"-Someone in the NYTimes
  • "Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is: to Live Everything. Live the Questions now. Perhaps, then, someday far in the future you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers."-Rainer Maria Rilke
  • "Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it necessary? Is it true? Does it improve on the silence?"-Shirdi Sai Baba
  • "Be as you wish to seem."-Socrates
  • "The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
