“When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.”

Mother – By that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.

You have to look deeper, way below the anger, the hurt, the hate, the jealousy, the self-pity, way down deeper where the dreams lie, son. Find your dream. It’s the pursuit of the dream that heals you.

Billy Mills (father), Oglala Lakota (1938-)

May you touch dragonflies & stars, dance with fairies & talk to the moon. May you grow up with love and a gracious heart and always know how loved you are.

The supreme treasure is knowledge, the middle treasure is children, and the lowest treasure is material wealth.

(Mongolian Proverb)

Loving oneself isn’t hard, when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.

Phylicia Rashad

“Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest weakness.”

継続は力なり。 (Keizoku wa chikara nari)

Continuance is power/strength.
Don’t give up. Just continuing to hold on will yield/reveal strength and power. Continuing on after a setback is its own kind of strength. Perseverance is power.

Finley Peter Dunne Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts.
