Maybe it's not a place on the map at all, but just a story full of people you meet and places you visit, full of books and films you've been to.

“But I think that because they trusted themselves and respected themselves as individuals, because they knew beyond doubt that they were valuable and potentially moral units -- because of this they could give God their own courage and dignity and then receive it back. Such things have disappeared perhaps because men do not trust themselves anymore, and when that happens there is nothing left except perhaps to find some strong sure man, even though he may be wrong, and to dangle from his coattails.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

T.C. Boyle
“In order to create you have to believe in your ability to do so and that often means excluding whole chunks of normal life, and, of course, pumping yourself up as much as possible as a way of keeping on. Sort of cheering for yourself in the great football stadium of life."

(Barnes & Noble Review, email dialogue with Cameron Martin, Feb. 09, 2009)”
T.C. Boyle

Alexandra Katehakis
“It’s crucial to practice self-empathy, for trust can’t be willed into existence. That didn’t work when our caregivers tried to impose their will on us, and it won’t work internally, either. Only when we can tap into a place of self-trust, with a reliable process of reparation for inevitable mistakes, can we build trust with another person.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Itohan Eghide

Gloria Steinem, Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem

Nathaniel Branden
“A mind that trusts itself is light on its feet.”
Nathaniel Branden, Six Pillars of Self-Esteem

E.S. Lowell, The Last Fairy Tale

Agnes Chew
“You yearn to stay in this in-between place, where the beauty of the times you have freshly bade farewell to is still alive and vivid in your mind – almost real – and the reality of your new circumstances has yet to fully sink in. You listen to the familiar melodies that had accompanied you on your journey, and allow the music to evoke landscapes and scenes in your mind. The songs caress your sub-consciousness and fill your being with an airy joy. You are both here and elsewhere. Or perhaps you are everywhere and nowhere.”
Agnes Chew, The Desire for Elsewhere

Debasish Mridha
“Integrity and self trust are the two important powers that can help you to reach success.”

“Moments later, I was climbing nervously into the back of the car. The driver wore the archetypal expression of an antagonist. No words were exchanged beyond the brief lines uttered to this nameless stranger, whose inclinations remained unclear. The car sped along empty roads and traversed dingy alleyways. Music blared from its speakers. I did not remember exhaling throughout the entire journey.”
Agnes Chew, The Desire for Elsewhere

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The picture waits for my verdict; it is not to command me, but I am to settle its claim to praise.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
