"The one thing I pray for now is to stay grounded, to know that Im just a vessel." -- E. Lynn Harris

"There must be more to life than having everything."
Maurice Sendak

"The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the worlds need of that work."
W. E. B. Dubois

"Living in balance and purity is the highest good for you and the earth." -- Deepak Chopra
