  • Often, when we tell another to think again, we are really telling them to think for the first time.


  • One of the best antidotes for another’s depression is ourselves.


  • Within each of is a child that begs for things and is frightened of other things; it is the adult that we have become that must either rule the child or be ruled in return.
