“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Dr. Howard Thurman

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anais Nin
