Selected from Laura Moncur's Motivational Quotations - September 18, 2013
It is wonderful how quickly you get used to things, even the most astonishing.
Edith Nesbitt  
When all is said and done, the weather and love are the two elements about which one can never be sure.
Alice Hoffman, 'Here on Earth'  
The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.
Aung San Suu Kyi (1945 - )  
A self that is only differentiated - not integrated - may attain great individual accomplishments, but risks being mired in self-centered egotism. By the same token, a person who self is based exclusively on integration will be well connected and secure, but lack autonomous individuality. Only when a person invests equal amounts of psychic energy in these two processes and avoids both selfishness and conformity is the self likely to relect complexity.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
