- Captain Picard, STAR TREK: The Next Generation

Many of us have been conditioned to trust others' opinions
more than our own, and I believe that sort of trust is excessive.

doctors, lawyers, priests. I trust my doctor's intentions toward me,
but I don't blindly follow his suggestions
without checking other sources also.
He was trained to prescribe a pill for everything,
and does it with the best of intentions,
but I often choose to trust God's quiet voice inside me
rather than my doctor's medical advice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Recognizing my blindness is the first step
toward regaining my sight.

On His Blindness:
When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one Talent which is death to hide
Lodged with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest He returning chide,
"Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?"
I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replies, "God doth not need
Either man's work or his own gifts. Who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly: thousands at his bidding speed,
And post o'er land and ocean without rest;
They also serve who only stand and wait.
- John Milton (1608-1674)

Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.

between the shores of your souls.

If we want to be with someone we love, aren't we already there?

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone.
Only through our love and friendship can we
create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
