"Love is something you and I must have. We must have it because our spirit feeds upon it. We must have it because without it we become weak and faint. Without love our self-esteem weakens, our courage fails, we can no longer look out confidently at the world. We turn inward and begin to feed upon our own personalities, and little by little we destroy ourselves. With it we are creative, we march tirelessly. With it, and with it alone, we are able to sacrifice for others." - Chief Dan George…

May silence make you strong! What a classy way to stay strong from within.... I can't be broken because I won't let you break me but I'm the only one who needs to know this truth from within. Broken people can't break those of us who are whole. #Epiphany
