or what color my skin is
or whether I'm a woman or a man.

He didn't come out of my belly, but my God,
I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal,
and how he sleeps,

But he is my biggest pride.

A person is smart. People are dumb,
panicky dangerous animals and you know it.

the Earth was the center of the universe.
Five hundred years ago,

and fifteen minutes ago,
you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

In art, the hand can never execute anything
higher than the heart can imagine.

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
-Sheri Rosenthal

The best way to appreciate your job
is to imagine yourself without one.
- Oscar Wilde

Eternity:
I am drawn to the wild edge of the ocean of my being
My curiosity unbound, I test the limits
of the limitless and the boundaries of the timeless.
I walk the path - the way - the way of ways -
to the end which is not an end.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We keep moving forward, opening new doors,
and doing new things, because we're curious
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
