“Anyone can change the world and everyone should try.”
Chantal Wiebe, M.Ed

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”
Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij of the Eagle Clan

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever
