Quotations
It always seems impossible until it's done.
“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”
“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself... Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.”
