“In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all…that in the middle of winter, I finally found that within me there lies an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger—something better, pushing right back.”
“I do not care at all if you are male or female, young or old, fat or thin, tall or short.
I do not care what you call yourself or how you dress.
I do not care what language you speak or what you make important in your life. I am interested only in your heart, in your love, in your compassion.
It is here, in this place that are we truly the same and share the beauty of our awakening.”
“Only through love can you return anyone to love. You cannot restore someone to their Connection with Source by belittling them or by punishing them, or by being disgusted with them. It is only through love that you can return anyone to love. And if you do not have a way of returning them to love, they will always be a problem to your society.”
