“The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire – the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain.”

– Helena Petrova Blavatsky – Russian writer

The most beautifull people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way up out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautifull people do not just happen.

– Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, 1926 – 2004

“…if there is something holding you back, you must press on until you have trampled it to dust.  Of course, simply pressing on will not in itself reveal to you the direction you must take: all you can do is go forward until you collide with something.”

Nothing befalls a man except what is in his nature to endure. — Marcus Aurelius

You need only claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly possess all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality!
