~ Howard Thurman -The Living Wisdom of Howard Thurman: A Visionary for Our Time.
“Forgiveness, the act of loving my enemy, like forgiveness of self, is not a sudden event, a rapid change of heart. Most of the time it is a long process that begins with the desire to be free, to accept ourselves as we are, and to grow in the love of those who are different and those who have hurt us or appear as rivals. It is the process of getting out of the prison of our likes and dislikes, our hatreds and fears, and walking to freedom and compassion.”
~ Jean Vanier
“If you don’t teach your children to be alone, they’ll only always know how to be lonely.”
