Ok, here are a couple more....

"One day, out of nowhere, you realize you don't know who you are, and none of the cards in your wallet provide the slightest clue to your real identity."

''Authentic spirituality leads from the sanctuary of private emotions into the chaotic arena of political life. Compassion-seeking -justice is compelled to gird its loins and battle the sources of injustice - the psychological predisposition to greed, indifference, lust for power, the myopic economic ideology that ignores everything but the bottom line, and the corruption of government by the few for the few.''

~Sam Keen~

we have known sadness.

If you can find humor in anything - even poverty -
you can survive it.
