    I am very good at being my own best friend. When you're comfortable in your own skin and know who you are; you will not allow others to influence or control you.

Be the Lamp or Be the Mirror

Kindness is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back.

You can be the lamp or the mirror which reflects its light.

Cast your bread upon the water and it shall return to you one hundredfold

Be yourself, no one else can do it for you!

Friday, December 03, 2010

To be nobody but yourself--in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

- EE Cummings, poet

Be yourself, no one else can do it for you!
- From the Talmud

This above all, to thineownself be true
and it follows therefore as surely as the night the day
Thou canst not be untrue to any man.
- Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
