  • No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

  • I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else’s freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity.

  • 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.

    We ask ourselves, who I am to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
    There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t
    feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of
    God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, but in everyone.

    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people
    permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
    presence automatically liberates others.
