Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. Yehuda Berg
We're all just bags of bones and muscle and hormones; I'll never understand what makes our minds do the things we do. It's like that statue of the monkey holding a skull. We're trying to use a thing we don't understand to understand ourselves. Meshell Ndegeocello
A blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen. John O'Donohue
The loss of a friend is like that of a limb; time may heal the anguish of the wound, but the loss cannot be repaired. Robert Southey
If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment. Carlos Santana
