“Cynicism is not skepticism. Cynics intend to project their internal pain onto others by seeking to destroy all that is possible and good. Skeptics seeks to understand, even when they have doubts, fears, concerns and apprehensions. Do what you wish, but if you’re a cynic don’t expect to last long on this page. Healthy skeptics, I always look forward to your contributions and questions.” — Mike Klingler

“You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t
You have wings
Learn to use them, and fly.”

“What you seek is seeking you.”
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I’m changing myself.”

Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
“The minute I’m disappointed, I feel encouraged.
When I’m ruined, I’m healed.
When I’m quiet and solid as the ground, then I talk
the low tones of thunder for everyone.”
“I looked in Temples, Churches and Mosques. I found the Divine in my heart.”
“A candle loses none of its light by lighting another.”
“When I am silent, I have thunder hidden inside.”
“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”
“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.”
