Faith begins as an experiment and ends as an experience.

~ William Ralph Inge

And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.

~ Audre Lorde

Question for you: Which words have moved you to feel your best? Who said them?

  1. That “opening” t-shirt quote AND the “closing” quotes from William Ralph Inge and Audre Lorde were perfectly timed to inspire me for a challenging day today… Thank you, Debbie. In my eyes, y’all are doing Great Dharma. 😉

  2. Feeling blessed with attention! Thank you for reading an extract from my book. Words have tremendous amount of energy and power. They can educate, heal and illuminate the mind.

  3. Thanks for your follow-up comments, Debbie, regarding the prayer for Joni (and others)… (I left a “thank you” from her & I in the comments section of that post.) 😉
