"Only to the degree that we've gotten to know our personal pain, only to the degree that we've related with pain at all, will we be fearless enough, brave enough, enough of a warrior to be willing to feel the pain of others . . . we will discover that their pain and our own pain is no different."
Martin Luther King JR
“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
