Toxic Parents by Susan Forward
“Denial is the lid on our emotional pressure cooker: the longer we leave it on, the more pressure we build up. Sooner or later, that pressure is bound to pop the lid, and we have an emotional crisis.”
Susan Forward

Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky
“The human spirit glows from that small inner light of doubt whether we are right, while those who believe with certainty that they possess the right are dark inside and darken the world outside with cruelty, pain, and injustice.”

Timber Hawkeye
“All the happiness in the world stems from wanting others to be happy, and all the suffering in the world stems from wanting the self to be happy. —Shantideva”
Timber Hawkeye, Buddhist Boot Camp

Timber Hawkeye
“The sentiment behind the golden rule is great (treating others the way we wish to be treated ourselves). But nowadays we don’t even treat ourselves very well! We knowingly consume things that are bad for us, continue working at jobs we hate, and don’t spend half as much time relaxing as we do stressing. Come to think of it, we ARE treating others the way we treat ourselves: poorly! We feed our children junk food, opt for cheap instead of quality even when it matters, rarely give anyone our undivided attention, and demand a lot more from others than what is reasonable or even possible. Let’s try something new: let’s treat everybody as if we just found out they’re about to die. Why? Because it seems that’s the ONLY time we slow down enough to get a new perspective on life—either then or when we have a near-death experience ourselves. Be gentle, patient, kind and understanding. We’re all headed in the same direction, so let’s start treating each other better along the way!”
Timber Hawkeye, Buddhist Boot Camp

“Treat every living being, including yourself, with kindness, and the world will immediately be a better place.”
Timber Hawkeye, Buddhist Boot Camp

“you really want to do something, you will find a way. If you don’t, you will find an excuse. —E. James Rohn”

“The past will let go of you if you let go of the past.”
