what nightspots I like to hit.

There'll be moments when I'm out in the prison yard,

which were for the moment unpopular.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all.

never thought you were good enough - SO WHAT?

What if it were only an illusion?
Perhaps life is not as threatening as it appears.
Perhaps the greatest threat to our serenity
is our fear of the future -
our fear of the unknown.
Perhaps, as Franklin D. Roosevelt said,
"The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Win as if you were used to it,
lose as if you enjoyed it for a change.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up

as if it were the only one we had.

of inertia and frustration is this:
Act as if it were impossible to fail.

either for the first or last time.
Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.

You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

so that other people won't feel insecure about you.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.

were the chief requirements of life,

is something to be enthusiastic about.
