“Replace fear with process.” (Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle is the Way)

“Give yourself the same grace with your anxiety that you would give to someone else.” (Kendra Zierau)

“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” (James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time)

“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” (Jesus speaking in John 12:24, NIV)

*

“Objective judgement. Unselfish action. Willing acceptance.” (Marcus Aurelius)

*

“The rising of the sun had made everything look so different—all colors and shadows were changed—that for a moment they didn’t see the important thing. Then they did. The Stone Table was broken into two pieces by a great crack that ran down it from end to end; and there was no Aslan.” (C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)

*

“Jesus was meant to be the guarantee that divinity can indeed reside within humanity.” (Richard Rohr, The Universal Christ)

*

“‘Good intention’ is a hall pass through history, a sleeping pill that ensures the Dream.” (Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me)

*

“There will come a time when we will love humanity, when we will gain the courage to fight for an equitable society for our beloved humanity, knowing, intelligently, that when we fight for humanity, we are fighting for ourselves. There will come a time. Maybe, just maybe, that time is now.” (Ibram X. Kendi, Stamped from the Beginning)
