Volcanic ash enriches the soil, so trouble feeds the psyche.

Difficult experiences don’t teach you something different; they make you something different.

Disappointments are diapause, the comma just before the clause.

Promote change; you are certain to get that.

Extremophiles thrive in ice and fire; adventure exists on a very high wire.

Just because you can’t hear the wheels turn, the cogs clank or the keys click doesn’t mean the next door isn’t opening.

Redwoods, grow, quietly.

The best miracle is not a healed hand; its a healed heart.

You can’t change your old history; you can always make a new one.

Redemptive prophets sell the field —  build and build and build and build.

Nothing changes like a change of heart.

Maturity has an acute awareness; it is of not having arrived.

We must come to terms with the people of our past so that we don’t destroy the people in our present.

We fix a thing by fixing the edge of the thing — until we have arrived at its center.

A cracked wall can be patched and painted; and a cracked life is not beyond repair.

We reshape the hateful past with a loving future.
