All of life is a first. Even if you’ve done something before, you’ve never done it now, on this day, feeling this way, in these conditions, with these particular limitations and advantages. Let that awareness be grace. Let it be a peace that surpasses all understanding. Let it be the seed of kindness, toward yourself and everybody else. And let it be just enough to help you tolerate the discomfort of being fully alive.

– Dr. Kelly Flanagan, “The Most Important Choice You’ll Ever Make

Life is change; growth is optional.   – Karen Kaiser Clark

Life is a great un-ending opportunity to see things differently, to keep re-framing disaster and discouragement into faith.

– Christina Baldwin, Life’s Companion

… life has taught me that it knows better plans than we can imagine, so that I try to submerge my own desires… into a calm willingness to accept what comes, and to make the most of it, then wait again.

“We each have only a limited amount of time here. We have to do more with it – pay attention, explore, be open to all of life. Because we have only one chance, we have to make life seem longer than it really is.”

If you live your life by other people’s standards, your life’s not really your own.

– Eddie Lee, in Beck

“Together we write the Book of Life. Our every encounter determined by fate and our hands joined in the belief that we can make a difference in the world. Everyone contributes a word, a sentence, an image, but in the end, it all makes sense: the happiness of one becomes the joy of all.”

Aleph, by Paulo Coelho
