Brené Brown
“Our stories are not meant for everyone. Hearing them is a privilege, and we should always ask ourselves this before we share: "Who has earned the right to hear my story?" If we have one or two people in our lives who can sit with us and hold space for our shame stories, and love us for our strengths and struggles, we are incredibly lucky. If we have a friend, or small group of friends, or family who embraces our imperfections, vulnerabilities, and power, and fills us with a sense of belonging, we are incredibly lucky.”
Brené Brown

Henepola Gunaratana
“The irony of it is that real peace comes only when you stop chasing it—another Catch-22.”
Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English

Vandana Shiva
“Whenever we engage in consumption or production patterns which take more than we need, we are engaging in violence.”
Vandana Shiva, Earth Democracy: Justice, Sustainability, and Peace

Vandana Shiva
“You are not Atlas carrying the world on your shoulder. It is good to remember that the planet is carrying you.”
Vandana Shiva

Henepola Gunaratana
“Buddhism advises you not to implant feelings that you don’t really have or avoid feelings that you do have. If you are miserable you are miserable; that is the reality, that is what is happening, so confront that. Look it square in the eye without flinching. When you are having a bad time, examine that experience, observe it mindfully, study the phenomenon and learn its mechanics. The way out of a trap is to study the trap itself, learn how it is built. You do this by taking the thing apart piece by piece. The trap can’t trap you if it has been taken to pieces. The result is freedom.”
Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English
