    "The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the one doing it." - Chinese Proverb

    This has had a lot of personal meaning to me. I've had some people who have been negative with me in my life, but one in particular (my mother) was emotionally abusive. I won't get into the details, but she rarely praised me for anything good I did...it's like anything good about me and my achievements were invisible. She was someone who would always tell me I couldn't do something, or it wasn't possible, and usually shot those "in the real world" statements at me to try and discourage me from any of my dreams, goals, etc. The funny thing is that what she was calling idealistic or not possible, was entirely possible in the real world because many people are doing it. . .going to college. It was normal for her to tell me I wasn't smart enough, too damaged, and a slew of other things to try and bring me down, but I ended up graduating college with a cumulative GPA of 3.96, and I'm currently studying for my master's and have a 4.0. I did it, and I'm still doing it, despite my mother discouraging me and trying to make me believe that I couldn't do it. This is just one example, but there's plenty of others I had to put up with over the years. The sad thing is that what my mother wanted for me and encouraged was to get pregnant very young (wanted me pregnant in my teens), and not to further my education or be picky about the type of man I'd marry. All I can say is not to listen to people who say you can't do something, and just do it

    "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." - Mahatma Gandhi

    (I read this quote as being about humanity on a macro scale, with the drops of dirty water being evil and destructive people who are thankfully outnumbered by decent people, but I think the ocean metaphor could also work on a smaller scale to describe the character of many (hopefully most) individuals - flawed, but basically good. Containing the seeds of evil - like selfishness, greed, and disconnection from others - that have the potential to turn into hate and the willingness to degrade others or to allow them to be degraded, but possessing enough love, compassion, conscience, and/or right-minded principles to keep those flaws in check most of the time.)

    Love this
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
