the legacy instead of the small.
Now. Now I will live large, love boldly,
reach to the edges of my unfurled heart and fully enrolled hope.

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion

subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young,
and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.

even more sharply by applying your focused effort.

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

or we may not be ready to meet the blows

It comes from your own actions.

When I am getting ready to reason with a man,
I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself
and what I am going to say
and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.
- Abraham Lincoln

It's one of life's great paradoxes ...
Accepting with gratitude whatever life throws at us

and ready to play again.

although I do not always like being taught.

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Except in cases of necessity, which are rare,
leave your friend to learn
unpleasant things from his enemies;

to be ready to speak at the passing of the hat.

There is also something excellent in every audience,
the capacity of virtue.
They are ready to be beatified.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have continuous and unlimited access to the infinite
and eternal energies of Spirit.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence -
is the key to unlocking our potential.
- Winston Churchill

Rather than worrying about the continuous stream of potential threats,
let us give thanks for our blessing of living in the eye-of-the-storm -
our protected refuge from the terrors
of fearsome dangers just outside our lives.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability,
but comes through continuous struggle.
And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom.

to speak to the listening heaven.

put your effort into controlling the sail, not the wind.

Although the world is full of suffering,

It comes without seeking and
is retained without effort.

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment,
full effort is full victory.

because misery is really hard work;
to maintain it is really difficult,
because you are doing something against nature.
- Osho

nature take sides with one party.

into coming closer to God is ever wasted -
even if in the end you don't achieve
what you are striving for.
- Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind;
it requires the same effort of the brain
that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.

for turning faith into a rich infallible experience.

that we can become oak trees.

for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.

to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and he who understands it aright
will rather preserve its life than destroy it.

if in terms of ten years, plant trees;
if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
