"Yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, but today well lived makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope" "My candle burns at both ends. It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends - It gives such lovely light" "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” “Fame is the perfume of heroic deeds or the stench of scandal" "any moment now the great oak doors will swing open on their rusty hinges and the glorious vision will step forth, stand a moment, winsomely framed in the tumescent archway, sniffing the wind like a dappled deer. Then he'll shoot a tender yet burning, soft yet passionate glance across 300 yards of sacred turf, hoping against hope that I shall be there to receive it. And I shall lay my heart at his feet" "even death is not to be feared, by those who live wisely"
