I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

everything that moves us most deeply.
- Jack Kornfield

If we fail to plan, we merely bob helplessly -
like a cork on the sea of life.

If we act with vision and commitment,
and then accept whatever Spirit provides,
we live a life of purpose and joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Man does not weave this web of life.
He is merely a strand of it.
Whatever he does to the web,
he does to himself.

Release your regrets about whatever you may have done

a joyful new future for yourself.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

At the beginning of a relationship
we are attracted to the other person because

If we don't feel appreciated, we don't feel loved.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
