Quotes for Friday
Remember! Things in life will not always run smoothly. Sometimes we will be rising toward the heights - then all will seem to reverse itself and start downward. The great fact to remember is that the trend of civilization itself is forever upward, that a line drawn through the middle of the peaks and the valleys of the centuries always has an upward trend.-- Endicott Peabody [When I was young, I thought that civilization was moving toward perfection, that by the time I was grown up, things would be perfect, (meaning, I guess, how I wanted them to be!), and wherever I got that idea, I have not a clue.]

Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that has the power. -- Oprah Winfrey, O Magazine [Fear itself, etc., etc.]

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don't know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody, you don't know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. -- Joseph Campbell (1904-1987)
