Words shape our reality, and a song or poem has that power in a potently condensed form. Likewise a pithy quotation can say it all – and lodge in the mind to drip-feed our own purpose and courage.

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here…

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won.
