Quotes I've collected

"May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."

"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world." - Bill Wilson

"Go in peace. Live simply, at home in yourself.
Be just in your word, just in deed.
Remember the depth of your own compassion.
Do not forget your power in the days of your powerlessness.
Do not desire to be wealthier than your peers, and never stint your hand of charity.
Practice forbearance in all you do. Speak the truth or speak not.
Take care of your body, be good to it, it is a good gift.
Crave peace for all peoples in this world, beginning with yourselves, and go as you go with the dream of that peace set firm in your heart. Amen."

"Cultivate love with all your ingenuity - both the capacity to give it and receive it. There is no other undertaking that does more to build up your power and intelligence."

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." - Plato

"Love Yourself" - Man holding a large poster on the southwest side of the Morrison Bridge
