My favorite is from Mr. Rogers: " You couldn't not love everyone, if you only knew their story." (He literally carried this in his pocket)
You do not have to attend every fight you are invited to. Everything you do and say has an impact and the potential to start an avalanche of change. Mellow red wine and quality chocolate are necessary. Children are for nurturing only and it is everyone's reponsibility to participate. Words, spoken or written can be the most powerful healing potion or the most bitter destructive poison.
