Knowing means to penetrate through the surface, in order to arrive at the roots, and hence the causes, knowing means to "see" reality in its nakedness. Knowing does not mean to be in the possession of the truth , it means to penetrate the surface and to strive critically and actively in order to approach truth ever more closely.

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
In addition to self-awareness, imagination, and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment -- independent will -- that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Love inspires, illumines, designates and leads the way.

Love is an attempt to change a piece of a dream world into reality.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.
It looks as if there were a single ultimate goal for mankind, a far goal toward which all persons strive. This is called variously by different authors self-actualization, self- realization, integration, psychological health, individuation, autonomy, creativity, productivity, but they all agree that this amounts to realizing the potentialities of the person, that is to say, becoming fully human, everything that person can be.

Live life with passion.
Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It's not what they're not doing or should be doing that's the issue. The issue is your own chosen response to the situation and what you should be doing. If you start to think the problem is "out there", stop yourself. That thought is the problem.
You learn as much from those who have failed as from those who have succeeded.
Your talent is god's gift to you.

Seek first to understand, then be understood
Practice loving people. It is true that this requires effort and continued practice, for some are not very lovable, or so it seems - with emphasis on "seems". Every person has lovable qualities when you really learn to know him.
Norman Vincent Peale
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
When I asked god for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face
When I asked god for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve
When I asked god for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people
When I asked god for wealth
He showed me how to work hard
When I asked god for favors
He showed me opportunities to work hard
When I asked god for peace
He showed me how to help others
God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed
What this power is I cannot say. All I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.
Alexander Graham Bell
If you build it, he will come.

One wolf is the vengeful, violent one, the other wolf is the loving compassionate one.' The grandson asked him, 'Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?' The grandfather answered, 'The one I feed.'
