Some Thoughts to Ponder

“We all like to think we’re right about what we believe about ourselves and what we often believe are only the best, most moral things. We like to pretend that our generous impulses come naturally. But the reality is we often become our kindest, most ethical selves only by seeing what it feels like to be selfish assholes first.” ~ Cheryl Strayed,  Brave Enough

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” ~ Jesus, Matthew 7:33

“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.” ~ E. O. Wilson
