Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Always accept good fortune with grace and humility.

"It may seem odd to modern readers, or even counterintuitive, that a religion that built its reputation on possessing the truth had members who attempted to disseminate their understanding of the truth though deceptive means. But it is precisely what happened. The use of deception to promote the truth may well be considered one of the most unsettling ironies of the early christian tradition."

Believe you can and you’re halfway there.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.

Translation: “Dear Sister: whoever respects herself, covers herself!”
Correction: “Dear Sister: whoever respects herself wears whatever she damn well pleases because her right to basic respect and courtesy as a human being has nothing to do with how much skin she shows. If she wants to cover up OR wear something revealing, that is HER choice. Anyone who has issues with that needs to take a long hard look at how they would wish to be treated in regards to their own clothing choices.”

Celtic Astrology: Fearn (18 March- 14 April)

"Fate has brought you here"

"Instead of regretting what we cannot do, it is better to do what one can. Even for example, what you do has nothing to do with results, you must forge forward."

"Human must think about living on. And, must also understand death. Most important, we must learn to understand the truth . . . "

"Living things are restrained by Chains: The laws of nature, the flow of time, the vessel known as your “body”, and the existence called your mind. The one chain that people can wield: WORDS. Words are beasts. Chains can be used for more than tying down. They can be used to connect, and tie together. Looking forward and speaking positively makes all the difference.”

"Nothing in this world is a coincidence. Everything is Hitsuzen."

"Hitsuzen...A naturally fore-ordained event. A state in which all other outcomes are impossible."
