something we should all live by...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are
inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are
powerful beyond measure. It is our light,
not our darkness, that frightens us. We
ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who
are you not to be?

"You are a child of God. Your playing small
doesn't serve the world. There's nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you. You
are born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within you. It's not just in some of us,
it's in everyone.

"And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same. As we're liberated from our
own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others."

-Marianne Williamson
quoted by Nelson Mandela in his inaugural speech.
