St. Francis de Sales in Wikipedia
Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
St. Francis de Sales
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength
Be who you are and be that well.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections.
Those who love to be feared fear to be loved, and they themselves are more afraid than anyone, for whereas other men fear only them, they fear everyone.
Hope is the struggle of the soul, breaking loose from what is perishable, and attesting her eternity
(August 01, 1819 - September 28, 1891)
I embrace emerging experience.I participate in discovery.I am a butterfly.I am not a butterfly collector.I want the experience of the butterfly.
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
Zora Neale Hurston
