Kelly Corbet
“Mindfulness is resilience-making.

It’s like hydrating before a big race: you might not be thirsty when you’re drinking,
but you’re stronger and prepared when reserves are low.”
Kelly Corbet, BIG: the practice of joy

“Through mindfulness you will remember who you are. Through wholeheartedness you will be who you are.”
Mari Perron, A Course of Love: Combined Volume

“Desire persuades us that if only we have a pleasant breath or if only we have that spacious feeling we had earlier, then we would be happy. But desire is insatiable. As soon as we get the object or experience we have been longing for, we move on to another desire, because the more we pursue desire, the more desire we experience.”
Arinna Weisman, The Beginner's Guide to Insight Meditation

“Normalize listening more than you talk.”
Maxime Lagacé

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Everyone needs a support system, be it family, friends, coworkers, therapists, or religious leaders. We cannot do life alone and expect to keep mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. Everyone needs some sort of support system on which to rely.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold: Quotes, Poetry, & Motivations for Every Day of the Year
