“Sometimes the solutions to our problems come from looking backwards, not forwards.”
Jane V. Blanchard, Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino

“It is the time you have devoted to your rose that makes your rose so important.”
Saint-Exupéry

“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.”
Stephen Russell, Barefoot Doctor's Guide to the Tao: A Spiritual Handbook for the Urban Warrior
