“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 frightens us. If, however, 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”

Nelson Mandela

“I hear people everywhere saying that the trouble with our time is that we have no great leaders any more. If we look back we always had them. But to me it seems there is a very profound reason why there are no great leaders any more. It is because they are no longer needed. The message is clear. You no longer want to be led from the outside. Every man must be his own leader. He now knows enough not to follow other people. He must follow the light that’s within himself, and through this light he will create a new community.”

Laurens Van Der Post

Michael Salcman, MD


“Life is the expression of love in sound waves and energy currents, throughout the creation and in man. Love is light, which crystallizes as beauty in the spectrum, becomes color and gases as it is reduced in speed of vibration, and also forms the beautiful colors in the buds, the flowers, and the fruits. It precipitates as the delicate pink color of the lacework of tissues in the human form. Everywhere is the expression of love and beauty.”

Dr. Randolph Stone


Art is the most intense mode of individualism the world has ever known.

You will not find it there
But in despised poems
It is difficult to get the news from poems
Yet men die miserably everyday
For lack of what is found there”

E.B. White said, “Every morning I awake torn between a desire to save the world and an inclination to savor it. This makes it hard to plan the day.” But if we forget to savor the world, what possible reason do we have for saving it? In a way, the savoring must come first.

William F. Schulz

“We’re all in this alone - together!”

Lily Tomlin


‘Biophilia,’ which is defined as our natural sense of connectedness to life. Wilson writes, ‘to explore and to affiliate with life is a deep and complicated process in mental development. To an extent still undervalued in philosophy and religion, our existence depends on this propensity, our spirit is woven from it, hope rises on its currents.’
It may be that our growing appreciation of that truth will be the greatest legacy we can pass on to future generations.

E.O. Wilson


Real beauty is my aim.
