Liberation 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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is 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. -Nelson Mandela (I'm pretty sure!)

Check out the book, "Just Do It", part of the Life 101 series. Can't remember the author's name, but it's an outstanding book, and peppered throughout with great quotes!

"Plants, like people, flourish when they find their niche." - Unknown, by me at least. I think I heard this on an HGTV garden show last year when I was teaching a biology class about niches, so it stuck in my mind. Now, I'd like to reverse it to: People, like plants... Either way it relates to our topic w/ Barbara's books.

Found this on ivillage where someone had asked a question about procrastination... When you find yourself blocked and unable to start a task and you have tried everything else, ask yourself, "Is there anything, no matter how small, that I am willing to do?" When you find that small thing, you are no longer procrastinating.--Odette Pollar It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.--W. Somerset Maugham How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.--Coco Chanel You will never "find" time for anything. If you want time you must make it.--Charles Buxton

FYI: someone earlier in this thread mentioned the book \"Just Do It.\" The title is actually \"Do It! Let\'s Get Off Our But\'s\" [i.e. \"But, I can\'t do that...]. Author: Peter McWilliams. It\'s a great source of great quotes. (Cautionary note: be sure to look for the second edition, revised after McWilliams got rid of a scary would-be guru/co-author.) ------------------ Cindy Celtic & Contemporary Harps HarperCraft http://www.harpercraft.com
