As soon as you trust yourself,
you will know how to live.
It doesn’t matter what we do
until we accept ourselves.
Once we accept ourselves,
it doesn’t matter what we do.
What we achieve inwardly,
will change outer reality.
Anxiety is the mark of spiritual insecurity.
Some people say they haven’t yet found themselves.
But the self is not something one finds;
it is something one creates.
I will not permit any man to narrow
and degrade my soul by making me hate him.
Booker T. Washington
forget what the world thinks of your stepping out of your place;
think your best thoughts,
speak your best words,
work your best works,
looking to your own conscience for approval.
Susan B. Anthony
