Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose. —Frank Tyger
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help.

When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch.

May Light always surround you; 
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing; 
Your Heart embrace Feeling.

Every Kindness a Prism.

Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For, 
May your arms Never Tire.
 —D. Simone
If a person seems wicked, do not cast him away. Awaken him with your words, elevate him with your deeds, repay his injury with your kindness. Do not cast him away; cast away his wickedness. —Lao Tzu
