It is simplicity that makes the uneducated more effective than the educated when addressing popular audiences.

When we understand that life is a series of passages and each has helped us to become more than we were before, then the changes we must endure and the mountains we must climb become easier to face. When we begin to define what is most precious to us, when we find the courage to follow our own path and make a conscious choice to see through the eyes of hope, this when our life's purpose is revealed.

~Flavia Weedn, 2002
Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself.

~Samuel Butler (1612-80),
English Poet & Author
