    Hey.

    "Oppression is no excuse for vengeance -- for murder. I wonder... does the death of innocent people -- cut down on the streets as they flee -- free you? I think not." -- Professor Charles Xavier - TheUncannyXMEN

    Behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern....

    The whole world is a work of art.....

    There is no Shakespeare,

    There is no beethoven;

    Certainly and emphatically there is no God;

    We are the words;

    We are the music;

    We are the thing itself.

    -Virginia woolf

    Peace out

    Sometimes the smallest gestures, smallest compliments or just knowing that someone is thinking about you can be enough to make you smile for the rest of the day

    I love the "door" quote Janey!

    I recalled this one, when I read yours...

    "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door."

    ---Milton Berle

    That's one of my fave Virginia Woolf quotes, Matt...nice one brother!

    Who said your quote gld?

    Matthew 6:14-15 NIV

    For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    Hi all;

    As a peer supporter, quotes are a good way to uplift and encourage. My favourite quote of all time is from Nelson Mandela;

    'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others'

    A powerhouse of words indeed. Merry Xmas!

    Sara xoxo

    Hi everyone.

    Hello there, Mr Source, and Matt!.

    Hopefully we don't have to be a peer supporter to post a quote. I have far too many quotes that I love. At this time of year I like to have family and friends around me. Non judgemental people. I heard this quote the other day and really liked it!.

    “I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.” ― Amy Poehler

    I feel that way about you two guys, Kaitoa and Matt. You've both been very kind, supportive and non judgemental. I love just that. Thank you both for helping me to peacefully dream again.

    Wishing us all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

    DD.

    Duirt me leat go raibh me breoite - on Spike Milligan's Headstone.

    (It's Gaelic meaning "I told you I was ill" - the local diocese would not approve it in English)

    To me it shows both humor and determination in overcoming obstacles
