Day #2 of 3 Day Quote Challenge

Inspirational Quotes:


This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

14th Dalai Lama

Ametrine (2)


You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

  1. Psst….”Invictus” is not by Nelson Mandela. He famously quoted it, but it is by William Ernest Henley. The story behind it is powerful even without Mandela’s association.
