“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.” --August Wilson

“The final mystery is oneself.” --Oscar Wilde

“We're constantly being told what other people think we are, and that's why it is so important to know yourself.” --Sarah McLachlan
