"You have the capacity to choose what you think about.  If you choose to think about past hurts, you will continue to feel bad.  While it's true you cannot change the effect past influences had on you once,  you can change the effect they have on you now."

Job 12:8

"Speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee."

Nathan Kollar

John Ruskin

"The deadliest of all things to me is the loss of faith in nature.  No spring-- no summer.  Fog always, and the snow faded from the alps."

Eckhart Tolle

“On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a joyous energy behind what you do.”
