“Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.”
Parker J. Palmer, Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation

“Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks--we will also find our path of authentic service in the world.”
Parker J. Palmer

“Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.”
Parker J. Palmer, The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life
