These phrases resonated with me:

"I discovered that the way to get my needs met was to first meet the needs of others. If I could tell people stories, bake them cookies, and make them laugh, I would be loved." (7)
"Inspiration is very polite. She knocks softly and then goes away if we don't answer the door." (43)
"Carl Rogers- people only seriously consider change when they feel accepted for exactly who they are. (154)"
"To a certain extent, we are our problems. To lose them is to lose our identity." (154)
