"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Christopher Robin

My personal trials have also taught me the value of unmerited suffering. As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways that I could respond to my situation: either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course..." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"It is better, to be feared, than to be loved"
The Prince-- N. Machiavelli

"First good doctor, do no harm".

"Papa don't preach".

"Give me liberty or give me death".

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
    -Geneen Roth
