    What is your favourite quote of all time?

    Mine would have to be: 'If you think you're free, there's no escape possible.' 
    To me this sums up my whole childhood.  I thought I had all the freedom in the world, until I realised children didn't have to be seen and not heard, we could criticize our elders and question their actions and they certainly weren't always right!

    "Be well." Not "get better soon", not "hope you're alright", just "be well, now."

    Also, "keep it real".

    Grounding mantras I use everyday smile

    My favorite quote is from Desiderata. It is "Be careful. Strive to be happy." The thing is though,if I answered this question on a different day, I might choose a different quote but that's the one today anyway.

    Don't know who said it first, but this quote sums up my attitude to life: " Don't take anything in life too seriously; none of us are getting out of it alive anyway"

    Injustice anywhere can lead to injustice everywhere (Martin Luther King)

    Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. (Mother Theresa)
