To acknowledge the law of magnetism, we study the works of: *Charles Darwin* *Joseph Pilates* *Ida Rolf* *Yogananda*

~ Joseph Pilates ~
Im 50 years ahead of my time. Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor.

The mind, when housed in a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power.

Born December 9, 1883, Died October 9, 1967 German Inventor of Pilates Method of Physical Fitness A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion. "With body, mind, and spirit functioning perfectly as a coordinated whole, what else could reasonably be expected other than an active, alert, disciplined person."

~ Yogananda~
Learn to be calm and you will always be happy. The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success. Faithfulness in the performance of small duties gives us strength to adhere to difficult determinations that life will someday force us to make.

Retire to the center of your being, which is calmness.

Having lots of money while not having inner peace is like dying of thirst while bathing in the ocean.

Born January 5, 1893, Died March 7, 1952 Hindu (Indian) Yogi and Guru The soul loves to meditate, for in contact with the Spirit lies its greatest joy. If, then you experience mental resistance during meditation, remember that reluctance to meditate comes from the ego; it doesn't belong to the soul. Many people excuse their own faults but judge other persons harshly. We should reverse this attitude by excusing others' shortcomings and by harshly examining our own.

~Ida Rolf~
Form and function are a unity, two sides of one coin. In order to enhance function, Appropriate form must exist or be created.

no situation exists in a human which a psychologist would diagnose as a feeling of insecurity or inadequacy unless it is accompanied by a physical situation which bears witness to the fact that the gravitational support is inadequate.

This is the gospel of Rolfing: when the body gets working appropriately, the forces of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself.

Born May 19, 1896, Died March 19, 1979 American Biochemist and Creator of Structural Integration or Rolfing

Rolfing can be like making your bed in the morning. You think youre going to get by without pulling that bed apart, so you pull up this cover and the next cover. When you get all the covers puffed up, youve got nine ridges running across the bed. Now youve got to go to a deeper layer and organize the deeper layer, and make your bed on top of that. Then youve got a made bed. Well its the same with the body: youve got to organize those deeper layers.

~Charles Darwin~
I love fools experiments. I am always making them.

Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive. It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week.

Born February 12, 1809, Died April 19, 1882 English Naturalist who documented Evolution and Natural Selection Nothing before had ever made me thoroughly realise, though I had read various scientific books, that science consists in grouping facts so that general laws or conclusions may be drawn from them.

To witness the law of consciousness, we study the works of:

*Immanuel Kant*
*Edgar Degas* *Albert Bandura* *Rainer Maria Rilke*

~Rainer Maria Rilke~


The only journey is the one within. All the soarings of my mind begin in my blood. Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.

I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other.

I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.

Born December 4, 1875, Died December 29, 1926 Bohemian-Austrian Poet Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.

~Edgar Degas~
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

Art is vice. You don't marry it legitimately, you rape it.

In painting you must give the idea of the true by means of the false.

Born July 19, 1834, Died September 27, 1917 French Artist

~Immanuel Kant~
What can I know? What ought I to do? What can I hope? Always recognize that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end. Two things awe me most, the starry sky above me and the moral law within me. From such crooked wood as that which man is made of, nothing straight can be fashioned. If man makes himself a worm he must not complain when he is trodden on.

Born April 22, 1724, Died February 12, 1804 German philosopher and professor Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law. But although all our knowledge begins with experience, it does not follow that it arises from experience.

~Albert Bandura~
Most of the images of reality on which we base our actions are really based on vicarious experience.

Accomplishment is socially judged by ill defined criteria so that one has to rely on others to find out how one is doing.

In order to succeed, people need a sense of self-efficacy, to struggle together with resilience to meet the inevitable obstacles and inequities of life.

Born December 4, 1925 Canadian Psychologist known for Social Cognitive Theory

People who believe they have the power to exercise some measure of control over their lives are healthier, more effective and more successful than those who lack faith in their ability to effect changes in their lives.
Coping with the demands of everyday life would be exceedingly trying if one could arrive at solutions to problems only by actually performing possible options and suffering the consequences.

To define the law of polarities, we study the works of:

*Socrates* *Elie Wiesel* *Jorge Luis Borges* *Helen Frankenthaler*

~Socrates~
Be as you wish to seem. False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.

The poets are only the interpreters of the Gods.

It is not living that matters, but living rightly.

Born circa 469 BC, Died circa 399 BC Classical Greek Athenian Philosopher If all misfortunes were laid in one common heap whence everyone must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart. The unexamined life is not worth living.

~Elie Wiesel~
Not to transmit an experience is to betray it. I decided to devote my life to telling the story because I felt that having survived I owe something to the dead and anyone who does not remember betrays them again. I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Some stories are true that never happened.


Peace is our gift to each other. I write to understand as much as to be understood.

Born September 30, 1928 Romanian-born Jewish-American writer, professor, activist, Nobel Laureate

~Helen Frankenthaler~
A really good picture looks as if it's happened at once. It's an immediate image.

Born December 12, 1928 American abstract painter


There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.

~Jorge Luis Borges~


Life and death have been lacking in my life. To die for a religion is easier than to live it absolutely.

In general, every country has the language it deserves.

I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does.

Any life is made up of a single moment, the moment in which a man finds out, once and for all, who he is.

Born August 24, 1899, Died June 14, 1986 Argentine writer, essayist, and poet The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.

To conceptualize the law of mutuality, we study the works of: *Henry Wadsworth Longfellow*

*Thich Nhat Hanh*


*Maya Angelou*

*Blaise Pascal*

~Thich Nhat Hanh~


In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change. People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?

Smiling is very important. If we are not able to smile, then the world will not have peace. It is not by going out for a demonstration against nuclear missiles that we can bring about peace. It is with our capacity of smiling, breathing, and being peace that we can make peace.

The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions.

Born October 11, 1926 Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet, peace activist

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~


Music is the universal language of mankind. Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence. Each morning sees some task begun, each evening sees it close; Something attempted, something done, has earned a night's repose.

Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think.

Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.

Born February 27, 1807, Died March 24, 1882 American poet and educator In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity. Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.

~Blaise Pascal~
It is the fight alone that pleases us, not the victory. If we examine our thoughts, we shall find them always occupied with the past and the future. It is incomprehensible that God should exist, and it is incomprehensible that he should not exist.

Love has reasons which reason cannot understand.

The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.

Born June 19, 1623, Died August 19, 1662 French mathematician, inventor, physicist, writer, and Catholic philosopher Between us and heaven or hell there is only life, which is the frailest thing in the world. We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart. Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere.

~Maya Angelou~
Nothing will work unless you do. Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage. If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.

There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.

Born April 4, 1928 African-American author and poet There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth. The sadness of the women's movement is that they don't allow the necessity of love. See, I don't personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.

To experience the law of reciprocity, we study the works of:

*Viktor Frankl* *Amelia Earhart* *T.S. Eliot*

*Geoffrey Chaucer*

~T.S. Eliot~
April is the cruelest month. Anxiety is the hand maiden of creativity. I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.

Born September 26, 1888, Died January 4, 1965 American-born English poet, playwright, and literary critic It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind. It's strange that words are so inadequate. Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words.

~Amelia Earhart~
Adventure is worthwhile in itself.

Never do things others can do and will do if there are things others cannot do or will not do.

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

Born July 24, 1897, Disappeared July 2, 1937, Declared legally dead January 5, 1939 American aviation pioneer and author The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.

~Viktor Frankl~
Fear may come true that which one is afraid of. Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.

Born March 26, 1905, Died September 2, 1997 Austrian Jewish neurologist and psychiatrist, Holocaust survivor Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

~Geoffrey Chaucer~
Love is blind.

Time and tide wait for no man.

We know little of the things for which we pray.

People can die of mere imagination.

Forbid us something, and that thing we desire.

Born circa 1343, Died October 25, 1400 Father of English Literature, greatest English poet of Middle Ages

To clarify the law of reciprocity, we study the works of:

*Prophet Jeremiah* *Mohandas Gandhi* *St. Theresa de Avila*

*Eleanor Roosevelt*

~Prophet Jeremiah~
Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole landagainst the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land.

They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord.

Born circa 655 BC, Died circa 586 BC A main prophet of the Hebrew bible

~Mohandas Gandhi~
Be the change that you want to see in the world. A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave. A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.

An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.


I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.

I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so Born October 2, 1869, Died January 30, 1948 unlike your Christ. Pre-eminent political and ideological Indian leader

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory. Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

~St. Theresa of Avila~


Be gentle to all and stern with yourself. All things must come to the soul from its roots, from where it is planted. Our body has this defect that, the more it is provided care and comforts, the more needs and desires it finds.

God gave us faculties for our use; each of them will receive its proper reward. Then do not let us try to charm them to sleep, but permit them to do their work until divinely called to something higher.

To have courage for whatever comes in life - everything lies in that.

Pain is never permanent.

Born March 28, 1515, Died October 4, 1582 Prominent Spanish mystic, Roman Catholic saint Learn to self conquest, persevere thus for a time, and you will perceive very clearly the advantage which you gain from it.

~Eleanor Roosevelt~
It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness. It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself. A little simplification would be the first step toward rational living, I think. I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.

Born October 11, 1884, Died November 7, 1962 American United Nations diplomat, humanitarian, and First Lady Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't. We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.

To pattern the law of reciprocity, we study the works of:

*Khalil Gibran* *Wislawa Szymborska* *Winston Churchill* *Pythagoras*

~Wislawa Szymborska~
I like being near the top of a mountain. One can't get lost here. All imperfection is easier to tolerate if served up in small doses. Any knowledge that doesn't lead to new questions quickly dies out: it fails to maintain the temperature required for sustaining life. Keep up the good work, if only for a while, if only for the twinkling of a tiny galaxy. Born July 2, 1923 Polish poet, essayist and translator Let the people who never find true love keep saying that there's no such thing. Their faith will make it easier for them to live and die.

In every tragedy, an element of comedy is preserved. Comedy is just tragedy reversed.

You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.

~Khalil Gibran~
Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream. Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving me that which you need more than I do. If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work. The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind. March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path. Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand. Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all.

Born January 6, 1883, Died April 10, 1931 Lebanese-American artist, poet, philosopher And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

~Pythagoras~
Silence is better than unmeaning words. Choose rather to be strong of soul than strong of body. Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.

Rest satisfied with doing well, and leave others to talk of you as they will.

The oldest, shortest words "yes" and "no" - are those which require the most thought.

Born circa 570 BC, Died circa 495 BC Ionian Greek philosopher, mathematician Reason is immortal, all else mortal.

~Winston Churchill~
Never, never, never give up. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure. Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else. I like a man who grins when he fights. If you are going through hell, keep going. Born November 30, 1874, Died January 24, 1965 British politician and statesman If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack. Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.

To shape the law of reciprocity, we study the works of: *Johann Sebastian Bach* *Abraham Maslow* *Audrey Hepburn* *Henry David Thoreau*

~Abraham Maslow~
A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting. A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness. If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I'd still swim. And I'd despise the one who gave up.

What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

If you deliberately plan on being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.

Born April 1, 1908, Died June 8, 1970 American professor of psychology


He that is good with a hammer tends to think everything is a nail.

I was obliged to be industrious. Whoever is equally industrious will succeed equally well.

Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.

Born March 21, 1685, Died July 28, 1750 German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist and violinist

~Henry David Thoreau~


Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something. Dreams are the touchstones of our character. A man's interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town. Beware of all enterprises that require a new set of clothes. How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live. Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant? Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Born July 12, 1817, Died May 6, 1862 American author, poet, abolitionist (transcendentalist) I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now.

I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
If a man constantly aspires is he not elevated?

~Audrey Hepburn~
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'! If I'm honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all. Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.

There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.

Born May 4, 1929, Died January 20, 1993 British actress and humanitarian I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink.

*Anne Frank* *Patanjali* *Frederick Douglass* *Eckhart Tolle*

~Anne Frank~
No one has ever become poor by giving. How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death... I think... peace and tranquillity will return again.

We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.

In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit. The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.

Born June 12, 1929, Died early March, 1945 German Jewish Holocaust victim/writer And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world.

~Eckhart Tolle~
Life is the dancer and you are the dance. Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
Born 1948, date unknown German-born Canadian author Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have? Thinking and consciousness are not synonymous. Thinking is only a small aspect of consciousness. Thought cannot exist without consciousness, but consciousness does not need thought.

Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.

~Patanjali~
Yoga is the cessation of the movements of the mind. Then there is abiding in the Seer's own form. For those who have an intense urge for Spirit and wisdom, it sits near them, waiting.

Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.

Peace can be reached through meditation on the knowledge which dreams give. Peace can also be reached through concentration upon that which is dearest to the heart.

Lived in 150 BCE or 2nd Century BCE Compiler of the Yoga Sutras

Without a struggle, there can be no progress.

I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.


Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.

We have to do with the past only as we can make it useful to the present and the future.

The soul that is within me no man can degrade.

Born February 1818, Died February 20, 1895 African-American social reformer, orator, writer, and statesman To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.

Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. I do not seek. I find. To draw you must close your eyes and sing. If only we could pull out our brain and use only our eyes. The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.

If there were only one truth, you couldn't paint a hundred canvases on the same theme.

Born October 25, 1881, Died April 8, 1973 Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor Success is dangerous. One begins to copy oneself, and to copy oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility.

~Helen Keller~
It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision. All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming. I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see. Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.

Born June 27, 1880, Died June 1, 1968 American author, political activist, and lecturer

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much Knowledge is love and light and vision.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~


Always do what you are afraid to do.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
Every man supposes himself not to be fully understood or appreciated.

Beauty without grace is the hook without the bait. Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world. For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Hitch your wagon to a star.

You are constantly invited to be what you are.

Born May 25, 1803, Died April 27, 1882 American transcendentalist essayist, poet and lecturer Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you. Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. The only way to have a friend is to be one.

~Lao Te Tzu~
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty."


He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.

He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

Lived during the Zhou dynasty Mystic philosopher of ancient China I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.

What is firmly rooted cannot be pulled out.

~Thomas Merton~
Perhaps I am stronger than I think. Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone-we find it with another. The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. The very contradictions in my life are in some ways signs of God's mercy to me.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

Born January 31, 1915, Died December 10, 1968 Anglo-American Catholic writer We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness.

~Rosa Parks~
The only tired I was, was tired of giving in.

Whatever my individual desires were to be free, I was not alone. There were many others who felt the same way.

I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.

The body says what words cannot. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion. Learn by practice.

Dance is the hidden language of the soul.


Nothing is more revealing than movement.

Think of the magic of the foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It's a miracle and the dance is a celebration of that miracle.
You are unique, and if that is not fulfilled, then something has been lost.

The body is a sacred garment.


Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can. Born May 11, 1894, Died April 1, 1991 American modern dancer and choreographer

~Muhammed Ali~
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are. Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain wrong.

It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it.

~Carl Jung~
I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.

Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people. The word "happiness" would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.
It is one of the blessings of this world that few people see visions and dream dreams. Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.

No man may make another free.

Sweat, sweat, sweat! Work and sweat, cry and sweat, pray and sweat!

Nothing that God ever made is the same thing to more than one person.

There are years that ask questions and years that answer.

~Anais Nin~
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are. Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age. And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.

Do not seek the because - in love there is no because, no reason, no explanation, no solutions.

Life is truly known only to those who suffer, lose, endure adversity and stumble from defeat to defeat.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.

To calibrate the law of coalescence, we study the works of: *Carl Rogers* *Elizabeth Kubler Ross* *Jivaka* *St. Francis of Assisi*

~Carl Rogers~
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination. When I look at the world I'm pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic.

In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.

We meet no ordinary people in our lives.

All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites. In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.

Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things that revolve around love.

If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark. In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.

~Swami Vivekananda~
The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong. All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark. Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything. Believe in yourself and the world will be at your feet

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.

~Mother Theresa~
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love. I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal. We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
