Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

Stephanie Garber
“The future is much like the past; it is mostly set, but can always be altered.”
Stephanie Garber, Caraval

Stephanie Garber
“What you think of as fate only applies to the past. Our futures are only predictable because as creatures of this world we are predictable. Think of a cat and mouse. [...] When a cat sees a mouse, it will always chase, unless, perhaps, the cat is pursued by something larger, like a dog. We are much the same. The future knows what things we desire, unless there is something greater in our path that chases us away. [...] But even those things that might alter our course, the future usually sees clearly. [...] It is not fate, it is simply the future observing that which we crave the most. Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything.”
Stephanie Garber, Caraval

Stephanie Garber
“Welcome, welcome to Caraval! The grandest show on land or by sea. Inside you’ll experience more wonders than most people see in a lifetime. You can sip magic from a cup and buy dreams in a bottle. But before you fully enter into our world, you must remember it’s all a game. What happens beyond this gate may frighten or excite you, but don’t let any of it trick you. We will try to convince you it’s real, but all of it is a performance. A world built of make-believe. So while we want you to get swept away, be careful of being swept too far away. Dreams that come true can be beautiful, but they can also turn into nightmares when people won’t wake up.”
Stephanie Garber, Caraval

“Let me be clear once for all!
I am not scared of my own dead! I don’t mind if I die and whenever I die. I welcome dead with open arms. But I am scared from the death of those who I care and love.”
Arash Tabish

“It is rather paradoxical for our task-focused self when it isn't the quality of the practice, but our honest and humble acceptance of the emerging moment, that prepares us for nonjudgemental, agendaless presence with another.

Being kind to ourselves can be helpful as we seek to practice this way of being, because it places us at cross-purposes with our culture, where performance and improvement are so valued and the limits and variability of our humanness are cause for criticism and correction.

Many aspects of our training as well as our everyday experience in this society urge us to take control to achieve a particular result, and this can become so implicitly ingrained that it feels wrong to sink toward our innate humanity.

Again, just listening with kindness to the competing voices inside is good preparation for extending this attentiveness and kindness to all aspects of the person about to come in our door.”
Bonnie Badenoch, The Heart of Trauma: Healing the Embodied Brain in the Context of Relationships

“I caught sight of myself reflected in the window of the convenience store I'd just come out of. My hands, my feet—they existed only for the store! For the first time, I could think of the me in the window as a being with meaning.

Erica Bauermeister
“Fisher ramped back the engine while I waited, watching as the line of the horizon turned into dots and dashes- and then something slim and black and white lifted out of the water in a soaring arc that looked like nothing but celebration.
"Dolphins," I said, laughing. "It's dolphins."
Hundreds of them, streaking toward us, faster than our boat could ever go. They overtook us, wave after wave of flashing tails and gleaming backs. For what must have been ten minutes we stood, stunned, as the dolphins flowed around our boat. Finally, the last wave passed and we watched as they traveled on, leaving a foaming white trail for us behind them.
"I think we can call that a welcome," Fisher said.”
Erica Bauermeister, The Scent Keeper

“Dear Friend,
You are a like-minded folk, a peppy, merry & hearty being like a basket of joy, a podium of sharing, a spot of weakness, an altar of adoring. Now, we are together more stronger, better and go-ahead. I'm always thankful & blessed. Happy Bonding Forever.”
Lord Robin

“Protect your passengers and monitor the systems that keep them alive, the file read. Provide a safe and welcoming atmosphere for all sapients present. Yes, they were someone else's words, but she had no desire to change them. She liked those words. They suited her just fine.”
Becky Chambers, A Closed and Common Orbit

“I know it's hard for American students to reach out to us refugees, and maybe you worry about being rejected or put on the spot. But here is one thing I want to say in this book: it's harder for us to reach out to you - we, with our clumsy English. I want to say, Don't be afraid of us - you have to understand: We're afraid of you. We want to make friends, but you have to take the first step.”
Farah Ahmedi, The Story of My Life: An Afghan Girl on the Other Side of the Sky

“People are willing to help you succeed but many are probably not sure whether you might feel insulted or might see it as genuine help, that's why we should always seek out for help when we're stuck,so as to make people feel welcomed to offer ideas.”

Mark Twain
“A kindly courtesy does at least save one’s feelings, even if it is not professing to stand for a welcome.”
Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson

Walt Whitman
“Welcome is every organ and attribute of me, and of any man hearty and clean,
Not an inch nor a particle of an inch is vile, and none shall be
less familiar than the rest.”
Walt Whitman
