i love this one. I talk to so many people that worry about making mistakes. it is hard to learn anything if you don't make a mistake. important is not to make a big mistake!

The Einstein quote was good - I agree with you, msvb19. What I liked most about it was that it was Albert Einstein saying that mistakes are ok... I figure if anyone should know - it would be him - he was, after all, a genius.

I also liked this one "When you close your doors, and make darkness within, remember never to say that you are alone, for you are not alone; nay, God is within, and your genius is within..."

And I liked that the Buddha himself was telling me that I deserve my own love and affection.

Plus - this one is always a favorite:

"Accept everything about yourself,
I mean everything.
You are you and that is the beginning and the end,
no apologies, no regrets."

~Clark Moustakas
