"Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of an uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd." - Edith Sitwell

"Sorrow comes in great waves...but it rolls over us, and though it may almost smother us, it leaves us. And we know that if it is strong, we are stronger, inasmuch as it passes and we remain." ~ Henry James

Change has considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful, change is threatening because it means that things may get worse To the hopeful, change is encouraging because things may get better. To confident, change is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
~ King Whitney, Jr.

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
~Anna Freud

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."
~ Mohandas Gandhi

"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be "happy." I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all."
~ Leo C. Rosten

Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can’t prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice, and the choice can be power.
–Blaine Lee

"The pain of the truth is not nearly as bad as, pretending the truth does not exist"

"Black bird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life you have only waited til this moment has arrived.
Black bird singing in the dead of night. Take these sunken eyes and learn to see. All your life you have only waited for this moment to be free."

"Acknowledge each feeling (as it arises), and then let it go.
If you do not continue with it, then you will be free of that feeling.
Similar thoughts and feelings may come again,
but just treat them the same."
