Quotes of the day... 10/30/14

The more likely we are to assume 
that the solution comes from the outside, 
the less likely we are to solve our problems.
     ~ Carl Sagan

...an optimistic mind-set finds dozens 
of possible solutions for every problem 
that the pessimist regards as incurable.

on the road to discovery. 
There comes a leap in consciousness, 
call it intuition or what you will, 
the solution comes to you 
and you don't know how or why.
     ~ Albert Einstein

Quotes of the day... 10/29/14

When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, 
I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on.
     ~ Carl R. Rogers 

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. 
When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, 
"Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." 
I don't try to control a sunset. 
I watch with awe as it unfolds.
     ~ Carl R. Rogers

is because we compare our behind-the-scenes

Instead of trying to prove that you're better 
than you think, just laugh. 
Laugh at your worries and insecurities. 
View your anxieties with humor.
