"Each one of us has to be our true self: fresh, solid, at ease, loving and compassionate. When we are our true selves, not only you but everyone around you will profit from your presence. Just like a beautiful tree: if the tree is anything but a tree we will all be in trouble." Thich Nhat Hanh
"The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering."
"The way I teach my students to work is to bring them in to conditions where they can learn to think. They have to learn to think without words, with images, patterns and connections. That sort of thinking always leads to a new way of action. ...if you think for one second in this way, which eliminates the connection with words, you cannot think but in patterns, in disciplines connected to one another... You are thinking with the elements of thinking. Maybe whatever you do has already been invented by somebody, but you have (now) invented it yourself. You have created it. So you can see, ...you actually begin to think for the first time in your life, originally, creatively. You will be surprised what you can do. I was surprised.” Moshe Feldenkrais
