Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. —Rabindranath Tagore

In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud --- the obstacles of life and its suffering. ...

If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. —Goldie Hawn
