    ”Follow the path of the unsafe, the independent thinker.
    Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy.
    Speak your mind and fear less the label of "crackpot", than the stigma of conformity.”

    Here's one that came to be just this morning from JB70...and it made me feel really good.


    As Christopher Robin said to Pooh:
    "Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

    "They say that the most important thing to do, to help women in the poor parts of the world, is to make sure there is water in the centre of the village, so that they don't have to carry it miles every day. It is not that important to have water supply in the homes, as a well in the middle of the village also serves as a meeting point. Something to take into consideration for us who think that a new Ikea-kitchen would make us happier, when in fact we need someone to talk to."

    Never by my stepdad...
    Every time my mom would get tired of me and my sister being raucous she would look at my stepdad and say "Would you please speak to these kids!" And he would wave at us and say "Hello kids".

    “Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”

    - My favorite day, said Pooh.
