Life is a great big canvas, and you should


throw all the paint on


it you can.  ~Danny Kaye


Living with integrity means:

  • Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships.
  • Asking for what you want and need from others.
  • Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension.
  • Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values.
  • Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.



There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. 

 ~Anaïs Nin


You can never go home again, but the


 truth is you can never leave home, so it’s


all right.  ~Maya Angelou


I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. 


I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much. 


~Mother Teresa


In faith there is enough light for those who want to


believe and enough shadows to blind those who


don’t.  ~Blaise Pascal


The flower is the poetry of reproduction.  It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. 

~Jean Giraudoux
