Quote in honor of Troy Davis, via Pema Chodron:
If we want there to be peace in the world, we have to be brave enough to soften what is rigid in our hearts, to find the soft spot and stay with it.
We have to have that kind of courage and take that kind of responsibility.
That’s the true practice of peace.

(Practicing Peace in Times of War) {} I'm not "Spiritual." I just practice being a good person.

When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something.
We might realize that this is a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can go either way.
We can shut down and feel resentful, or we can touch in on that throbbing quality.
~ Pema Chodron

Motivation is a fire from within.  If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
~ Stephen R. Covey

Listen a hundred times; ponder a thousand times; speak once.
~ Turkish Proverb
