We can’t live in the past but we can learn from it. Roger Crawford
The Editor is Often the Enemy of the Creator
I’m beginning to learn that when I’m in a creative mode, the Editor is often the enemy of the Creator; we can’t entertain them both at the same time. The Editor doesn’t play fair, so only when the Creator is ensconced in a protected place should we allow the Editor to come out to play. –Scrap Lady Sharon Barnes

Compassion and Our Capacity to Suffering
Compassion begins with the acceptance of what is most human in ourselves, what is most capable of suffering. In attending to our own capacity to suffer, we can uncover a simple and profound connection between our own vulnerability and the vulnerability in all others. Experiencing this allows us to find an instinctive kindness toward life which is the foundation of all compassion and genuine service. Rachel Naomi Remen
Our Unlimited Bank Account
Remembering that God is my source, we are in the spiritual position of having an unlimited bank account. Most of us never consider how powerful the creator really is. Instead, we draw very limited amounts of the power available to us. We decide how powerful God is for us. We unconsciously set a limit on how much God can give us or help us. We are stingy with ourselves. And if we receive a gift beyond our imagining, we send it back. Julia Cameron.
I Live on Dreams
Like all people who have nothing, I lived on dreams. Anzia Yezierrska
Failure Is Not The Falling Down but The Staying Down
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down. Mary Pickford
Disappointments in Love, Betrayals and Losses
Disappointments in love, even betrayals and losses, serve the soul at the very moment they seem in life to be tragedies. The soul is partly in time and partly in eternity. We might remember the part that resides in eternity when we feel despair over the part that is in life. Thomas Moore.
