Wouldn't it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy?

Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out. —Alan Cohen
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. —Richard David Bach

Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. —Henri Nouwen
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. —Ella Wheeler Wilcox
If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
