“The sun shines not on us but in us.”
“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.”
“Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look.”
~Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
“Men who are comfortable with powerful women are more powerful men.” (Comic Con, 7-13-2012)”
“What we become shouldn't be dictated by the mud and the dung and the dust and the fire and the ice and the dirt and the spit that hit us in the face, but what we become must be a choice made every day in the heart; and they who threw all of that at us to try and defile us– they will look up at us and see us no less beautiful. And even more beautiful.”
~C. JoyBell C.
“Know your magic, trust your magic, use your magic and know that you are a manifestation of life's magic.”
“I feel that we are often taken out of our comfort zones, pushed and shoved out of our nests, because if not, we would never know what we could do with our wings, we would never see the horizon and the sun setting on it, we would never know that there's something far better beyond where we are at the moment. It can hurt, but then later you say "thank you." I have been pushed and shoved and have fallen out and away, so very, very, many, many times! And others around me have not! But then, the others haven't seen what I have seen or felt what I have felt or been who I have been, they can't become what I have become. I am me.”
~C. JoyBell C.
