"May we not succumb to thoughts of violence and revenge today, but rather to thoughts of mercy and compassion. We are to love our enemies that they might be returned to their right minds."
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."Marianne Williamson on Lao Tzu
"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."Marianne Williamson on Oscar Wilde
"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is."Marianne Williamson on Jim Morrison
"Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye."Marianne Williamson on H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable."Marianne Williamson on Bruce Lee
"I deepen my experience of God through prayer, meditation, and forgiveness."
"Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here."
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us."
"As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others."
"The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world."
