    It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience.
    There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this
    distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal
    more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the
    only home we've ever known.”

    Carl Sagan

    "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived."

    -Gabriel Marcel


    My Complexity

    "We are all complex. I wish I were made of just one self — consistent, wise and loving — a self I should never wish to get rid of at any time or place, which would move graciously through my autobiography ‘trailing clouds of glory.’ … It is no use trying to reconcile the multitude of egos that compose me. I cannot fathom them myself. I ask myself questions that I cannot answer. I find my heart aching when I expected to find it rejoicing; tears flow from my eyes when my lips were formed to smile. I preach love, brotherhood and peace, but I am conscious of antagonisms, and lo! I find myself brandishing a sword and making ready for battle."

    - Helen Keller


    "Our listening creates a sanctuary for the homeless parts within another person."

    "Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd."
