"Don't be afraid to take big steps. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps."--David Lloyd George

"The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone."
-----Orison Swett Marden

"It is also in the compost that finally got dug. In the wood that was stacked and is drying by the woodstove for the storms that are moving in to drench the rest of the week. It's in walking the dog and having your breath caught up in the most perfect group of irises that you come upon. It's in the mimicry of a robin's stop and go and the laugh afterwards when the pup did keep up. It's in the energy shared between a flicker's blackened chest stripe and mine (but I haven't looked to see what color mine is today). It's in believing in a new day. 'Cause it's here whether you like it or not."-Mihern
