-Andrew Harvey, The Return of the Mother
"There is a road, no simple highway, Between the dawn and the dark of night, And if you go no one may follow, That path is for your steps alone." -The Grateful Dead
"If you want to create, you have to sacrifice superficiality, some security, and often your desire to be liked, to draw up your most intense insights, your most far-reaching visions." ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
