“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself.”

“Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters.”

“To grow, you must be willing to let your present and future be totally unlike your past. Your history is not your destiny.”

“When you learn to say yes to yourself, you will be able to say no to others, with love.”
