Here are three quotes that I like a lot...
A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror. ~Ken Keyes
We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. e.e. cummings
Certain people come into your life and an innate instinct kicks in, telling you that it was meant to be, that some divine purpose is at work.
